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.

  • 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
