A church like no other with gold gilded columns, ceilings and altar. The people of Quito are very proud of their heritage and these churches form part of this pride. A must see on your historic centre tour.

The decoration of this church is amazing, I can stay per hours just looking around those marvels, I never expected to find this kind of decoration in Ecuador. I can just compare with cathedral of Morreale in Sicily.

Amazing to view a most do. Best to do with a tour guide that can give you the history and details. But the sight itself is breath taking to view. The detail of the work and gold colours.

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.
