Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus, Quito

4.9
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.

  • Evaluating the historical side is a construction made the basis of much suffering, something very common in Catholic churches. But analyzing architectural side and historical/cultural also is one of the most amazing attractions of the city. Stay close to the Plaza de la Independencia (Plaza Grande) and admission is US $5.00. Looks expensive but the visit and guided private and so worth it. After the explanations of the guide you're free to visit the Church alone. The eyes glow of so much gold. Incredibly wonderful! Worth every penny.

Where to stay in Quito

Most visitors to Quito choose to stay in La Mariscal, a touristy neighborhood filled with guesthouses, restaurants, and bars. This area is also the town's nightlife hub, drawing a young crowd of revelers from around the world. If you prefer less noise, look for a bed in La Foresta, a quieter and less crowded alternative just a few blocks away from popular entertainment opportunities.
