Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil

4.4
Visit Iglesia San Francisco, the city's third oldest church and the symbol of Catholics all over Guayaquil. The building dates back to the very early 18th century when the structure was made entirely from wood, though it has undergone several renovations since that time. The history of the church dates back further to the 17th century, and links inscrutably to the movement of San Franciscans to Guayaquil, bringing their religion with them. The local attendance of this church remains particularly high, so a visit offers a glimpse of local everyday life.

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
