  • We approached the guards standing watch over the palace and they let us enter in. It's crazy that the President of Ecuador is responsible for providing his own security.  more »
  • Cute Palace however best to enter to see their works of art and see the changing of the guard. From there you can start to explore the 7 crosses

  • A very nice place to meet. Existing document with photo (passport, identity card or passport) is required admission is free with guide for groups of 12 people approximately. Known all the spaces of the Palace of Government where there are murals, paintings and gifts that have been sent to the President by other leaders, some are very surprising! A very nice tour for part of the history of the Ecuador from a different perspective.
