Create an itinerary including La Capilla Del Hombre
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. To visit La Capilla Del Hombre on your holiday in Quito, and find out what else Quito has to offer, use our Quito.

  • This museum/house tour was not for me. Maybe it is excellent for others, but I just had to escape the tour group and sit outside. Our guide was utterly obsessed with the artist, if you aren't also...

  • Expensive in Ecuador at 10$ per person. You can’t enter the house museum without a guide. So you are guided around in a big group and not allowed to venture too far. But seeing the studio was cool. The capilla is impressive, big, and without a lot of explanation.
  • Interesting museum, impressive architecture, nice staff with knowledge - we got free tours (from family members of the artist!).
  • The unfinished masterpiece by Guayasamin features his series about human misery. The art subject us not very happy but still the man had an undeniable talent to pass his vision to the admirer of his work.
  • Very interesting museum and estate with a focus on human rights. Emotional, but well done. English or Spanish tour available (tip if you would like). You can only walk through house with a tour/guide; wish we had more time in the house. Worth a visit!!!
  • This is an amazing beautiful place. If you travel to countries and want to know the artist that may have had a part of changing that culture then Capilla del Hombre is for you. The house tour and art museum is absolutly amazing.
