This is a well maintained church. I guess the Jesuits take the $5 cover charge and use it to maintain the building. It seems kinda strange that this is the only church in the old town that charges for admission. But it also prohibits any photos or videos. Either its a church and is open to all, or its a museum and should allow photos.

I’ve seen a lot of churches all over the world, some more grand, some less, but the guide in this one was informative and entertaining. Gold everywhere, but only about 45 pounds...thin gold leaf. Very worthwhile for30-40 mi

Really shows the efforts of the Spanish to impress the locals and interesting overaly of Spanish and local decoration (and the Spanish side additionally looks back to the Moorish influences found in Andulusia)

We were very surprised by the beautiful of the historical center and all the churches. It is valuable to spend enough time to Quito. Two years ago we have been to La Paz and Lima. No comparison! Quito is fantastic

This church is dazzling. Unfortunately, you can't take pictures inside, but postcards are for sale. It is worth a visit just to take in all the art work and the gold leaf.

Absolutely beautiful church with incredible architecture. Be wary though - no photography. I didn't see any signs but found out the hard way...got chastised by a security guard.

Beautiful example of baroque style. The guided tour is worth the price. Very knowledgeable guides. Given advance notice, they can provide an English speaking guide. It is actually a working church with masses celebrated regularly.

Spectacular! This is the finest example of baroque architecture in the Americas. If this church doesn’t give you goosebumps, nothing will.

This is a must stop if you visit Quito. I wish they allowed you to take pictures here. It was beautiful. Recommend you take the guided tour. Not too long and highly informative.

This was one of our highlights! This cathedral was 160 years in the construction, built by the Jesuits. An enormous amount of gilt was used throughout. An absolutely beautiful structure, in the heart of the old city- which must not be missed.
