Certainly worth the $5 entry fee. The gold work is stunning . Sadly you cannot take photos, but it is really beautiful.

One will marvel how such a material object could be built to revere a Deity "who is not of this Earth" But Jesuits persisted and to this day have protected this over the top church while object poverty lies around its edges .

Too much money for the entrance fee. Too much gold. I was not pleased we stopped in. I would suggest other attractions.

As churches go, this is one of the most impressive I’ve seen. It doesn’t look any different from the outside, but it’s coated in gold on the inside. Definitely worth having a look if you’re in Quito.

It's not a tourist attraction per se but a working church, first and foremost. You have to pay $5 to enter. A guard ensures that no casual visitors can approach the entrance for a sneak view and also prevent entry during services, of which there...More

We visited while spending a week in Quito as we had been told about the beauty of this church. The artwork and the gold were a spectacle and certainly lived up to the reputation. There were two fabulous massive paintings depicting hell (and the reasons...More

Didn't see the inside but outside was amazing. Good views from here as well as you get into the old city.

One of the main places to visit when in Quito! It is just one of the most incredible pieces of history in the city.

A truly beautiful church. Hear the anecdotes, and then just walk around it alone. Marvel at the details, and whisper a prayer to this God or another! It certainly represents the efforts (and sacrifices imposed in the native people) to serve an otherwordly deity.

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.
