  • We were on the day's deceased travels, enjoy the Chair of history, toured several sites that we met for the first time, and enjoyed the purple ¨colada and the pan¨ademas of the exquisite ceremonial ¨canelazo¨gastronomia of the Ecuador bus and in a well-preserved Republican mansion. Accompanied by pleasant, valuable staff to enhance and preserve the vivid stories of the Center.

  • Mansion of Quito's richest women is a museum. We visited interesting bathrooms seem to be cutting edge at the time, Baccarat chandeliers and Venetian dishes as well as fire extinguishers, typewriter, oven or United Kingdom traces of life. Only Spain, staff explained to us, so deeper understanding.

  • We passed this old noble's House while strolling in the evening but intrigued us for deficiencies decorations and clearly by the fact that though there was an indication that it was a House Museum. Certainly something more interesting will be inside.
