We started a city tour on El Panecillo to get an overview of the city. It's a beautiful spot, especially the statue of Mary. The guide told us it was the only winged statue of Mary in existence.

Amazing views and a great cardio workout.
Amazing views even on poor visibility days.
Very close to down town
Elevation may be challenging unless you cab it.

My daughter and I loved the view from El Panecillo. The city is laid out like a mosaic below! There are vendors for a snack or souvenirs.

Fun place to visit. It is very, very inexpensive to go inside and walk to the top. Great views. Amazing statue. Merchants and food available outside the statue.

If you are wanting 360 degree view of Quito, this is the place to go. Take a taxi (no more than $5.00, probably cheaper if you speak Spanish), cheaper than the Quito City Tour Bus ($15) unless you are intending to utilise the bus for travel to the north othe city - Craft Markets etc. Either get the taxi to wait or catch the local bus back to town (25c) but just watch your stuff, which is the general rule for all things Quito. Local bus 'to' El Panecillo is marked with El Panecillo in red - indicating that's the final destination. Naturally, the tourist office is reluctant to give this information when asked and they will tell you taxis are dangerous - hence the Quiti taxi reputation remains intact. Get your hotel to call a taxi for you as they have ones they use consistently so there is relationship. The $1.00 to go up the statue is a must - fabulous view.
