Another Great Piece of Capilla del Hombre

Don't miss this museum next to the Capilla. It's now part of Guayasamin's stunning home, which can be toured for free. Pick up some prints for cheap!

Your $8 dollar entry fee includes both the Capilla del Hombre and the Guyasamin home museum and the guided tour in either English or Spanish. Both are located on the same site in upscale Bellavista , on a hill in the north east of Quito. It will cost about $10 for a round trip taxi ride to get there and... More

The approach belies what turned out to be a fascinating insight into the work and varied art work collection of the artist Guayasamin. Well worth the $8.00 entrance fee, leave yourself 3 to 4 hours to take it all in.

Guayasamin's paintings were powerful and emotional, and the Capilla del Hombre & Guayasamin's home were beautiful. A placard outside the museum quoted Guayasamin as saying, "I will paint with the scream of a shotgun, with the power of thunder and the fury of battle." His paintings reflected that passion.

This is one of the best museums in Quito and includes the home and an architecturally beautiful museum with many of his most well known art pieces. Free tours included in admission price.

Visiting Guayasamin museum was one of our highlights in Quito. The house museum has a fantastic location and offers a wonderful view but more than anything it unfolds priceless details about the artist's work and his commitment to social justice. For those looking for a better understanding of Ecuador and Latino America's reality, this museum is a great opportunity an... More

I had never heard of Guayasamin before arriving in Quito, and even then, I only heard about it when my travel agent recommended it to me. This experience was amazing. I learnt so much about who this artist was and what his convictions were. I loved everything his works stands for and the creative way in which he expressed his... More

If you have at least a little interest in culture, this museum is sort of a must in Quito. Guayasamín was the most important painter of Ecuador, and had friends as Fidel Castro, Pablo Neruda, Salvador Allende... Note that Capilla del Hombre and Guayasamín Museum are two buildings next to each other, you pay one ticket to visit both. A... More
