  • This church rose in honor of the Virgin Mary protective city after volcanic eruptions of the Pichincha that threatened to destroy it in the middle of the 17TH century. The Basilica de la Merced is entered by the square of the same name, has the best view of the Temple from that side: the great white canvas above the atrium of stone, the quadrangular tower with Arabic air in the upper body and auction; the central, graceful dome and the four cupulines with flashlight on the canvas. The access door is a representative frame of stone: pilasters of intercalated niches and so expensive adornments for Indian stonemasons.
