Spectacular! This is the finest example of baroque architecture in the Americas. If this church doesn’t give you goosebumps, nothing will.

This is a must stop if you visit Quito. I wish they allowed you to take pictures here. It was beautiful. Recommend you take the guided tour. Not too long and highly informative.

This was one of our highlights! This cathedral was 160 years in the construction, built by the Jesuits. An enormous amount of gilt was used throughout. An absolutely beautiful structure, in the heart of the old city- which must not be missed.

Even though I knew Quito has many beautiful churches it still surprised me. I loved the interior - the details - the gold and statues are simply breath taking. This would rival most churches in Rome

Quite possibly the richest church in Quito: the whole interior is covered with gold leaf. Great example of Spanish colonial architecture.

Although the entry fee is $5, it's worth it when you see all the gold leaf inside this beautiful old church...

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.

Puedes conseguir info en la pagina oficial de la fundación, sin embargo el precio de la boda rondaba entre los 500 dólares.
