The church was beautiful and the info we received from our gate 1 tour guide, Alfredo was very interesting. I would highly recommend that company if you are looking to do a tour of Ecuador.

This church is worth a look. It is not quite as overwhelming as the Iglesia de la Compania down the street, but still amazing inside. The amount of carving and decoration rivals the great cathedrals of Europe, just in wood rather than stone.

Interesting architecture, now a little tatty, should be great when the restoration work is complete.

This church was built in 16th century and gleams with elaborate gold leaf work. Apperently 3.5 tons of 18 Karet gold was used in the inlays. The visit of the courtyard and the surrounding quaters of the monastary was impressive.

Facing the large San Francisco Square, this monastery and church is a must place to visit - inside is a quiet court yard and one of the most highly decorated churches in all of Quito - & that is quite a feat...
