4.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Feast your eyes on the luxuriously decorated walls and ceiling of Cathedral of Quito (La Catedral). 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.
