It looks like a regular colonial era church from outside when you walk by on the street. However, I should say, the sculpture on the outside is still eye catching. Once inside you do feel the serenity. You don't need to be a believer or...More

The outside of this church is rather plain and dingy and easily missed when walking down the street 1 block from the historic Quito square. The property is poorly marked and has a wrought iron fence surrounding it with the gate closed. There will be...More

It is worth seeing for the craftsmanship and unbelievable amount of gold covering floor to ceiling. It is not surprising that it took more than a century to accomplish the work. I loved the painting representing hell near the entrance. It made me think of...More

We went as part of a tour of the old town. The front facade is an amazing piece of detailing. Not sure the entry fee is worth it though.

This by far is my favorite church in the world. Its full of history, gold and art. You have to get the inside tour to get to know more about its history and architecture.

Visited the church with three of my good friends and we were astounded by the level of details in the architecture of this church. Most wall decorations were plated in gold, so that was pretty interesting for sure. The only downside of this church was...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.
