Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus, Quito

(4.7/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Quito's famous Baroque church, Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus dazzles visitors with its golden interior. Dripping with extravagance, the church is adorned head to toe in gold leaf decorations, perhaps explaining why it took 160 years to build. Equally impressive-- though not nearly as golden--the church's symmetrical facade gives visitors a taste of what's to come inside. Have a look at the indigenous Ecuadorian faces depicted subtly on the pillars. Our Quito vacation trip planner makes visiting Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus and other Quito attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Still in its original stonework, the building and its intricate carved stone has survived the ravages of the centuries. It stands out fro, other renovated buildings 
  • I am no fan of baroque but this church is stunning in so many ways, though I doubt we'd have appreciated it nearly as much without the help of a guide. The guide is included in the $5 entrance price a...  more »
  • Both the façade and the interior are impressive. Had the opportunity of knowing the side that not is seen; I practically traveled above the Church where there is an exquisite architecture and you have a view to look at from another perspective, the other jewels that surround the Church of the company. It's amazing!.
