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.

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. For upscale sleeping options head to the old town, boasting many of Quito's top hotels in some of its prettiest buildings.

  • 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.
  • Es una muestra de la obra de Oswaldo Guayasamin, espectacular
  • 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.
