    The altar is all gold plated. It is really beautiful, the whole Church is beautiful and very well cared for. Try visiting at the time of the mass with all respect and silence, without taking pictures. At other times I couldn't. There are guards.

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

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.
