  • The chapel of man shows the impressive work of the representative of Ecuador, Oswaldo Guayasamín, painter and his work focused on the human being. It is another must in Quito.

  • I made the visit with a couple of Americans which their attention much the three stages of Guayasamin, great teacher, painter and expressionist. In his painting, they found much of his personal history and of the Ecuadorian indigenous nation and Latin American. Their suffering, the invasion of its culture, the imposition and its resistance to 500 years of colonialism and neocoloniaje. I was also impressed and visit keep it and keep as part of my cultural background and consciousness towards the subject peoples an important part of our identity as Latin Americans and citizens of the world.

  • When a tourist visits a museum you want to be seen and make special works of the painter, but in this place does not know if it is Museum, burning chapel or a somewhat idolatrous monument. Abstract a boring and annoying vije

  • 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.
