  • It is the most emblematic place of Quito in the Centre from there you can see the muffin, but at this point is the Palace of presidential (Center) to the front. Building of the municipality of Quito. On one side, the Archbishopric, since most of the people are Catholic, and the front of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Quito, all full of stories and legends. And in the Center a park with a monument in memory of the cry of independence. The Presidential Palace can enter free to watch from where he works the President, souvenirs and gifts from other countries that have given him and to leave there for history, near there all, museums, restaurants, etc, and end the weekend you can enjoy it more, close the area of cars (cars), so that people who likes the bike enjoy quietly or leave with the family and you will find on the street as a rake of handicraft, painting, music, artists, etc and if you are thirsty, they give you water. Do not miss this.

The tour is very well organized, removed tickets prior to the time of the selected tour, therefore should not do rows, inside is very nice, a video is exposed and exits to balconies from where each week the President attends to the changing of the guard of his escort, become tourist event. Within the modesty of the spaces and the gifts of other Governments, the site keeps formality that deserves and you learn a little about its history.
