I've seen a lot of churches in my travels, this one is unique and well worth the visit! Even though you can't take photos, it is still a great way to spend 30 mins. I would suggest getting a tour guide from somewhere, be it a guided Quito city tour or something like that, because there is a lot to... More

Stunning! A must see when you're in Quito. Iglesia located a couple of blocks from Presidential palace. We toured it on Monday, tie in watching the presidential ceremony at 11 p.m. in park across from Presidential palace. Visit the Iglesia, then walk back to Presidential palace at 2 to wait in line to get tickets to tour the Presidential palace.... More

Iglesia de La Campania de Jesus, located in the colonial section of Quito, was just fabulous. Almost everything inside is covered with gold leaf, and we were told that the value of all the gold leaf would cover the national debt. We visited this church as part of a tour with Gate 1 Travel. Rightfully so, our guide was so... More

Beautiful intricately decorated church in Quito centre, a really serene and peaceful place to visit. Beautiful statues inside as well as paintings and iconography. The exterior is huge, imposing and beautifully preserved. It has a real charm and sense of history. Lots of locals in and out showing their devotion. It's lovely to see a working church with such a... More

$5.00 will get you in to the incredible structure whose architecture alone is beautiful, but seeing the interior covered in gold leaf is spectacular.

We are normally no fans of visiting churches, but since our guide was catholic and he seemed to be excited about showing us this church, we agreed to spend the 5$/person, which was a good decision. The interior is simply amazing, difficult to describe. Just obe number: 10 tons of Gold have been used to decorate the walls, which makes... More

During my travels I have visited hundreds of churches and cathedrals in various countries on four different continents, and I must say that Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus of Quito is one of the most impressive and beautiful Baroque churches (with strong Moorish influence) I have ever seen. You can't take pictures inside, but this one I took from... More
