  • The Archbishop's Palace was the residence of the bishop since 1700 and was rebuilt in 1858 and again between 1975 and 1978.  more »
  • The Archbishop's Palace is right in piazza Grande, opposite the Cathedral and is certainly commendable especially for context. The stand out above all the arches because the rest from the idea of a certain simplicity. In the evening has an extra charm.

  • Great place to get a meal, or drink and relax, away from all the crowds in Old Town and Plaza Grande. Very colonial feel with courtyard and quaint restaurants.  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.
