  • I like the initiative of master painter who is owner of the place and as promotes various products related to the ancestral knowledge of the indigenous people. It is worth visiting it.

  • It is an art gallery made to look like an old temple. Definately worth seeing though. They offer education on Inca ways and itis a true replica of a temple. Complete with the solstice window overhead.  more »
  • The Museum is very interesting both for its geographic location its architecture, its representations, music, essences, rituals, painting... worth a go at family and discover it.

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.
