“Can't miss historical attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

A unique attraction in the Western Hemisphere, whether it's for art, culture, history or religious significance, you need to see this if you're in Quito. Foreigners pay more, so what? There are English language guides available for a donation. The suggested donation was $5, our guide was excellent, a college student.

“Impressive Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

This is a historic church in Old Quito that is worth a visit due to its history. It has been restored to its old splendor. There is a Jesuit art gallery in the Sacristy exhibiting various religious paintings and artifacts.

“#1 thing to see in Quito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Must see. I read in my guide book that a guide comes free with a ticket, but we didn't really get any such thing.

Nevertheless, this is the most spectacular thing I saw in Quito.

“All that glitters is gold!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is the church to beat all churches if you like over-the-top three-story high gilded alters. My wife and I sat awestruck by the magnificence of it all.
