We visited Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus as guests of a wedding there. As such, we did not have to pay the entrance fee & were permitted to take photos. The interior of the church is simply stunning. Every corner is covered in gold,...More

We were amazed at the contrast between the luxury and opulence of the churches and cathedrals compared to the low standard of living and near poverty of the communities surrounding the churches.

Visiting this church was a real treat. The design and composition is stunning as well as the history behind it. We were so glad we stopped to visit it.

There is an entry fee into this lovely church, but we'll worth the money. We had a guide which I would highly recommend. This church is highly decorated with gold inlay and beautifully decorated religious statues. You are not allowed photos which is a shame....More

Must see this excess of baroque style. Unique in its kind. That is all folks! Nicely restored. Quiet. Peaceful. Beautiful glass parties

You probably have already seen the description and pictures of this place. Yes, it is a splendid place, but I find their "no photography" policy unreasonable, especially considering that they charge a pretty high price ($5 per person). There are several cathedrals in Quito that...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.
