Owner description: Located in Quito’s historical neighborhood, this small and cozy church was built during the 16th century by the priests of La Merced.
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I've lived in Quito for 10 months and had not visited this church since I always Lund it closed. Today was my lucky day! The church is beautiful! Baroque altar be Bernardo Delagarde, wonderful canvases throughout the church along with shrines to various Virgin Mary's. out side the church there is a wonderful stone cross guarded by four lions in a primitive style. Well worth a visit.

excellent restoration work of the surrounding plaza and buildings, please update the photo on Trip advisor since this one corresponds to Basilica del Voto Nacional, not La Merced... both in Quito
