    Visit PIN. A magical place, with incredible energy, life and work of this large Ecuadorian painting. His spirit remains alive in the chapel of man and the House - Museum.

    Very interesting visit to deepen the understanding of the work of the master Guayasamín. The dimension of the place is impressive.

    The Guayasamin Foundation has a House Museum in Quito which is worth a visit. Ecuadorian artist original works are spectacular and knowing his life is very interesting.

    Stunning piece of architecture to show some of his work about the struggles of humanity. Powerful pieces individually, as well as together with the building and location. Great views of the city and surrounding mountains from the site and his house above.

    This was one of my best experiences in Quito, Ecuador. I have to say, I am an artists, so my opinion is based heavily on that. Amazing! The tour of the Oswaldo Guayasamín's home is great & filled with very interesting information. A close look into an artists life. It goes through different sections of the home, and ends with one of the last visions of the artist. A modern museum of his lasts pieces of paint works and projects. I don't want to give it all away, and I haven't even mentioned the best part of my visit. A good choice if traveling in Quito.

    Nice museum but you're not allowed to take pictures there.

    Very interesting and moving tribute the suffering of massively underprivileged and abused populations of Latin America. Provokes reflection. Make sure you take the tour (in English or Spanish) because I do not think you would get as much out of it if you just did your own walk-through. It was $8 for the ticket which gives you access to the adjacent casa-museo (the artist's house- highly recommended) as well as the Capilla del Hombre.

    Guayasamin was a genius. If you only have time for one museum, visit this one. Go for a walk or horse ride in a great park right next to museum.

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.
