An example of the rich history and gorgeous Churches in the historic district. Would not necessarily recommend paying the five dollars a person for an upclose look at the "Gold Church" unless you are really into that sort of thing. Better to take a tour...More

$2 entry fee for a beautiful walk around this gorgeous church. Light a candle, pray, or just walk around and view the beautiful structure.

This church was so interesting in the various types of architecture and the unbelievable gold details covering every surface. If you only have time to visit one church in Quito, make sure it's La Compania de Jesus!

I make it a habit to visit churches n every new country or city that I visit, because the roots of history often live beneath them. I can honestly say that this is the most unique experience I’ve had to date: the amount of concern,...More

This is a must when you visit Quito. Don’t forget to ask for a guide to understand its history. It is included in the cost. Guides are very prepared for telling about it. I loved this visit.

This church is impressive from the outside, but it does not prepare you for the absolute gold splendour inside. This is one of the most magnificent churches I have ever visited in my entire life! An absolute must for your visit to Quito.

Beautiful church. Full of gold. Would certainly recommend you take a tour guide if available. You will gain so much more from your visit. Unfortunately only Spanish speakers were available on our visit and, due to our limited Spanish, we had to rely on another...More

I’m not sure, however each fee’s are very reasonable, some just take donations. I don’t believe we paid more than $5 pp at any of these churches and we visited several. You might try Quinto Tourism for that question.

Puedes conseguir info en la pagina oficial de la fundación, sin embargo el precio de la boda rondaba entre los 500 dólares.
