  • The oldest church of Ecuador although it is in a rather soulless surroundings: at the edge of a road with much traffic. Few care to the environment and no information for visitors... We were lucky to find it open, which is not usually as normal. A shame!

  • One of the oldest churches of our country, located in a landscape ice cream next to a beautiful Lake... Colta. Unfortunately there is little information of the Church and not paid tribute to this important monument, the Church is very simple with clear Spanish vestiges and many more clear of the indigenous people who inhabited the place as an offering to the decoration of their walls. It looks a little abandoned in place but it is worth visiting it.

  • The first Church of the Roman Catholic Church founded by Spanish conquistadors in the lands of present-day Ecuador in 1534. Is in place of the first capital of the country-Santiago de Quito, moved then because of the damage after earthquakes. The current level of the village is built on the zasypanej volcanic ash of the original settlement, hence the legend of the underground treasures-Spanish gold. Modest architecture. Minus-weak object marking, easy to overlook.

  • Excellent reference in the history of our country, "Maria Natividad of Balbanera" represents the first Catholic Church of Ecuador established in 1534. Located in Colta, province of Chimborazo, near the lagoon of colta or "Kulta Kucha", which means "Duck Lake". On the site you can find a restaurant, bathrooms and areas to buy handicrafts
