This morning we start the day with a visit to el Panecillo, the statue of the Virgin of Quito, from where we can experience the wonderful panoramic views across Quito’s historical centre.

We then make our way down into the old town and continue on to visit the neo-Gothic Basilica with its unique gargoyles and vertigo challenging towers (if you dare to climb!).

In Independence Square (Plaza Grande) we discover the cathedral and government palace with its colorful guards. Walking a short distance, we come to the impressive La Compania de Jesus Church, with its intricate stone carved façade and incredible gold-leafed interiors.

Our tour finishes in the nearby San Francisco Plaza and church, an area of the old town with an authentic indigenous ambience.
