Seen many churches in many countries but the internal of this one was breathtaking. No pictures allowed so need to keep it in your memory!

An excellent example of Mudejar style architecture inside and hand carved stone outside. The altar is handcarved wood with gold overlay that is spectacular. Art from the Quito School is also displayed. Truly a beautiful colonial church.

We visited twice, the second time to attend mass on Sunday.
On Sunday morning there are volunteer "guards" posted at the gate who don't like tourists to go to the mass and then leave early but we persuaded them we would stay for the entire service, which we did. The church is very historical and amazingly ornate with significant spanish/moorish influence in the geometric decor.
During the day you can visit the sacristy and also the bells which were saved from the collapsed campanile after an earlier earthquake. This is a not-to-be-missed church in Quito.

An amazing Jesuit construction that features a totally gold plated wood walls. This is one of the 7 churches that cross the 7 crosses street (Garcia Moreno) so you can plan to visit all the 7 churches in one day. Quito is well know for being the First Historical Downtown named as Wold Heritage by UNESCO in 1978. This church is part of this declaration. Usually you cannot find and religious service in the church. You'll need to pay an entrace fee to have a guided tour around the church and their exhibit of Quitenean School art pieces.

Half refinished and it is incredible! If you are a church goer it is rightup there with someof the nicest active churches in the world. If you have time ask someone to tell you the story of it being built.
