Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Pichincha Province / Quito / Catedral Metropolitana de Quito
Feast your eyes on the luxuriously decorated walls and ceiling of Catedral Metropolitana de Quito. In contrast to its crisp white exterior, the cathedral's insides dazzle with colorful murals, marble columns, and gold decor. Built in the 16th century and damaged by a handful of natural disasters over the years, including a volcano eruption and an earthquake, the cathedral was declared Ecuador's most important Catholic church in 1995. Make the most of the guided tour included in your ticket price. Tours come in Spanish and, depending on the availability of guides, usually in English.

Beautiful cathedral, amazing energy and art. Everyone who likes to look at church has to go and have a look. Also for religious people this is a beautiful spot and also a place to go deep within, to either meditate or pray.

It is a wonderful place to go.
Beautiful, sadly taking pictures is forbidden unless you are sneaky ^^
The best history center of the countries. I love it.
