Well worth a visit even if you are chomping at the bit (like me) to get to the Galapagos. Beautiful!

What a lovely cathedral! We even had a short private tour in English by a gentleman there for a $2 donation. Amazing carvings in many different styles.

First, allow me to suggest you take a formal tour versus venture out on your own. I know everyone is different, but within the city there were scary tanks and armed guards with assault weapons and the were on a high level of alert.

The city of Quito is worth a visit. It was memorable and unique. The Iglesia de San Francisco is complex and lovely, gold and simple at the same time. Walk around, take time here. It was peaceful even though it was packed.

I don't remember there being any services here, so that is part of why the bus is nice! Also, I didn't notice much disability access on our tour, so you might want to have assistance if you fall in that category.

This is a wonderful monastery in the plaza of central Quito. It has a beautiful courtyard with lots of birds of course being of Saint Francis. The museum is authentic but the chapel is amazing. It is all gold and incredible.

The Monastery is very big, with two patios, I suggest you read a liitle before getting there, so you can get the best of it. Do not miss the view from the "coro" (chorus) to the church, and the Tianguez underneath the church (entrance by the plaza).
