Visit at sunset for a great view of the city.......Wish there was a verbal tour available but the pictures inside offer some insight into the building of this beautiful sculpure.

I expected more of the renknowned Panecillo. Beside the Iconic Virgin and a Restaurant there is not much to do.

This site is in the midle of the city and this was the best panoramic view of Quito that I visited, although you need a guide to get there for safety reasons.

Awsome view from atop the virgen. BEWARE: do not Attempt to walk up the hill or YOU WILL BE ROBBED. Only go with an official taxi or with a professional guide. Don't be afraid, once you reach the top (tourist area) there are armed police and nice tourist shops. The view is worth it as you can see most of Quito and marvel at the cities beautiful layout

Not historic, but I find this statue to be incredibly beautiful. .. I am not religious, but this is one of the best things I saw in Quito.
The view is also outstanding. It is worth the $2-3/6 round trip (YES, do not let taxi drivers charge you more, and DO NOT WALK UP OR DOWN - people get robbed) to go see it. It only takes about 15 mins from old town.
There are also lots of vendors and food...but, this is not a reason to go up if you are going to Otavalo!
