Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Guayaquil attractions like Iglesia San Francisco can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I've seen old pictures of this church and indeed any one of the attractions is preserved in perfect condition, no doubt from the city of Guayaquil.
