La Capilla Del Hombre, Quito
(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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. Tragically, Guayasamin died before the opening of his masterpiece, but his spirit lives on in the floor-to-ceiling paintings lining the museum's walls. Take a guided tour in English, Spanish, or French, included in your ticket price. Arrange to visit La Capilla Del Hombre and other attractions in Quito using our Quito trip itinerary planner.

  • Not is can visit Quito without go to the chapel of the man, where is the House of Guayasamín and the exhibition of great part of its beautiful work. You have to go at least 3 hours to watch his work calmly. It is away from the Centre of the city, but you can take a taxi which is not expensive.

  • The few mentions of this site on the tourist map of Quito do not give a clear understanding of why one would want to go to the trouble of visiting. I had not heard of Oswaldo Guayasamin prior to visit...  more »

  • Take your camera. Take your time. Drink in the beautiful artifacts that the late Guayasamin kept in his home. The views are spectacular as you stand in front of his pool and look over Quito. There's a gift shop where you can buy some worthy exquisite pieces designed by the master himself.
  • Really enjoyed see the stellas donated to the museum by other Latin American countries.
  • one of most emotional experiences of my life. thankyou Oswaldo
  • The place is amazing but they made me leave my backpack by the entrance, no other tourists were asked to do the same. Guess it was because of my dark hair or something. The place is amazing, but I was the only tourist who did leave your backpack at the entrance. I guess it was my dark hair or something.
