I loved this church: it shows all the opulence of the catholic faith in a very good way.
I was mainly drawn from the exterior that is so different from the surrounding churches (and I love the exterior even more than the interior)
I was a bit disappointed because you are not allowed to take pictures (but I had to sneak one, sorry!) but the church is amazingly glorious with the gold gleaming in the sun coming from the top windows. Of course you just wonder around taking everything in and I find it relaxing not to have to focus on unmissable art (like the churches in Italy) and just enjoy your surroundings.

This church has a very ornate exterior - it is made out of carved lava rock. But it’s the interior that is really impressive, as every service is covered with gold leaf in ornate patterns with a Baroque style and Spanish/Moorish influences. Unfortunately, no photos are allowed inside the church. There’s a $5 entrance fee that is worth it to see this beautiful church.

Very lavish decor. I found the staff helpful myself, from the woman on the gate to the bloke who sold me the ticket and the 2 security staff who showed me where the steps up to the dome are. (Not at all obvious!) Do think compared to the Basilica del vota nacional this is a bit pricy at $5 in plus $3 to go up to the roof, if you’re on a budget then I’d run with the Basilica

The exterior is nothing special but the interior sure is! As per all the pictures, it is an awesome sight with so much of the inside dripping in gold and is undoubtedly worth a visit.
I agree with other though in that it could do better.
The entrance is not noticeable to tourist since it is behind railings and a closed gate. I walked past it thinking you must get in via the side street and hand to ask one of the security guards if it was even open to the public at this time. He then stood aside and unlocked the gate and indicated to go through and then just use the main door. The woman at the reception desk could not have been slower or more uninterested - but happy to take my $5. She mumbled a warning of no photography or video and I asked her if non-flash was ok. She just ignored me. I had indicated my camera to the guard outside and he had said photo ok. So I proceeded to take some. Only for a man to harshly tell me off! This was all very confusing especially as I had no flash on. I put my camera away but another guy then also shouted at me about photo no no no. Clearly people do take photos going by the reviews so they need a better policy here.
$5 is also expensive for Ecuador standards and you get no guide or even a leaflet for that to help you. So a mark off for the running of it but full marks for the architecture itself.

The church was so amazing it brought tears to my eyes! Even if you don't like to go in all the churches, don't miss this one! It was the most breathtaking church I have been in! Photos and video prohibited inside.

Entrance is $5 ( cash only). The ticketing system is slow and archaic. Once Inside you may admire the glory of the decor but it’s probably a 15 minute experience. No information in any language other than Spanish.

An expensive for Ecuador $5 entrance plus an additional $3 if you want to visit the rooftop and dome. It is an amazing site, 40% of all wall surfaces with stunning gold main and side altars, a wonderful roof and colourful dome. Annoyingly no photographs supposedly allowed, not very obvious until you are told. A photograph does no damage, a flash will, just clamp down on mobile phone users who can't control a flash.

The best representation of Barroque Art of Quito and maybe of America. it is outstanding, marvelous, glorious, any title is not enought to describe it. Now you can also ascend to the coupule, or descend to the catacumbs. They have guides to let you know how it was built.

Beautiful church, completely adorned by gold. Hired a local guide who was very knowledgeable about history and architecture.
