Great example of moorish architecture and design in this centuries old church. The tour was very educational. Pay the extra couple of dollars to go on the roof. The view of Quito’s old town is beautiful! Great photo-op.

I realize that where one worships is a matter of personal preference, but I couldn't help think that the gold on the walls and ceiling of this church might have been better spent on the infrastructure of the country. I didn't find it beautiful or...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.
