  • The convent has an interesting tour, where is shown the form of life of the Carmelite Sisters in seclusion.

  • The convent of Carmen Alto is now a Museum, but the wonder is that the nuns of the cloister are still living in the middle of the building. The works of art that are there are a treasure, especially birth that occupies an entire room and the Group of the Dormition of the Virgin with carvings of life-size. The Mideros works on the life of Mariana de Jesús that are in the parlor and in the first room are also very interesting. It is a place of great peace where one feels that it is out of the world for a few moments. Feels that it has been a place of prayer and deep contemplation. For children, youth and adults is very enriching visit because we can understand how to live the contemplative nuns.

  • My favorite museum in Quito. No pictures allowed as it is a holy, revered place and the docents follow you around! Really amazing!  more »

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.
