We walked through the church and after we had finished we started walking down the steps and a local woman grabbed my arm and pointed to another door beside the church. Thankful for the tip we made our way to the door that led you into the convent. The gardens inside are beautiful and a courtyard to walk around and view some sculptures, pictures, etc. Very thankful to that lady, we would have missed something beautiful.

Thank Jan B

To someone who has pretty well had their fill of churches, temples, wats and mosques throughout the world, the opulence and gold of the church is still breathtaking.

This church is very impressive and worth seeing in the old town of Quito. Easy to spend some time here looking at the little shops along the bottom especially the chocolate shop!

This is not as impressive a church as others in Old Quito, but it does have an interesting museum adjoining it. The museum exhibits religious paintings, statues and artifacts from the "Quito School" branch.
