  • Another huge restored church. La Merced is in the same street as San Francisco. We did not go insjde as we had seen so many beautiful old churches already. 
  • La Merced is an architectural gem. Personally is an of the churches that more I like of Quito. Two blocks from the impressive church of San Francisco, right along the street we find this church even though it is more modest, I think aesthetically it is very beautiful. Highlights with splendor it ship central, in which is stand out the dome of half Orange beautifully ornate with reasons floral with a light special that highlights them bows wide and the tone salmon. Also, possesses an atrium that impacts not by the size but by the lighting and colorful, the Merced is a church very well maintained, worthy of be visited and is a clear example of how generate beauty without appeal to the height and magnificence of the Basilica, for example. Here everything is resolved with light, colour and a curved geometry that generates "amplitude" through certain envelopes that placed the parishioners to a celestial arch. The beauty of the Church is completed with several paintings from the Quito School (not so obscurantist as San Francisco). It is said that this church which has been mutating over time withstood several earthquakes and volcanoes. Therefore, you have to take to visit and admire it.
