Immerse yourself in a creative and spiritual journey with a visit to La Capilla Del Hombre, a museum housed in an Inca-inspired chapel. Established by artist and philanthropist Oswaldo Guayasamin, the museum serves as a tribute to humankind, reflecting on suffering and violence but ultimately inspiring hope for a better future.

  • It is a must-see for the Ecuadorian art of the 20th century, and one of its most important Expressionist painters, Osvaldo Guayasamín. In addition to the Space Museum of impressive architecture and an excellent collection of the artist, you can visit what was to be his last private residence and Studio, in the same enclosure. From your garden also: extraordinary views of the city of Quito.

  • Oswaldo Guayasaminin legacy of the human race on his home-Vasari records eduatalla. A collection of his opinionated art for dozens of different mountain, and part of the post-mortem, carried out on the basis of the draft. Wonderful atmosphere, both inside and out.

  • The Assembly is formed by the Chapel and Guayasamín House. Even though the first was subjected to a thorough explanation, House, full of objects collected by the painter, of great interest, it was - in our case-object of a clearly insufficient explanation. guided tour just lasted 13 or 14 minutes and go through without stopping, authentically arreados, a guide that does not let us even made us repair in interesting parts such as pre-Incan pottery and others. exciting set with a visit very soon enough

  • This is a magic place where you can find some of Guayasamin's paints, Ecuadorian painter, sculptor and idealist. Once you get in, you can take the guided tour in which the guide explain each paint or group of paintings in order you can understand the passion and feelings of this amazing artist. Also you can find certified copies and many souvenirs. I loved this place ♥
  • An amazing and incredible museum. The works! All the staff is in love with the whole project and are really helpful with details. Go visit!
  • Wonderful and interesting place. One of our guides was excellent. Two things would make it better: more information about the artist's life and lifting the photo ban. It's hard to tell others about the place without photos.
  • Really interesting place that allows you to get to know the famous Ecuadorian artist, Oswaldo Guayasamin. It has a gorgeous view from the city. Enjoy!
  • Absolutely recommended. Entrance is 8 usd but includes guided visit and it's absolutely worth it
