A grand building with an extremely ornate door. Inside full of lots to see, no photos can be taken worth the visit

All of the main cathedrals in Quito are worth a visit, the vast majority are walking distance to each other. This one in particular has an absolutely stunning interior.

After seeing many churches around the world, I was still amazed at the beautiful gold interior of Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus. You're not supposed to take photos inside, but they would never do it justice anyway. The detail is incredible - must visit!!

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!

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.
