Visited the Basilica today for the first time while showing friends around Quito. A breathtaking gothic church. Beautiful stained glass windows, shrines to the Virgin of the different provinces of Ecuador, as well as to the different countries of Central and South America. The outside of the basilica has gargoyles in the shape of different animals from Ecuador, such as ant eaters, tortoises, pumas, iguanas, etc. I highly recommend that if your are in Quito, that you visit the basilica.
