Beautiful Jesuit church

Located in Old town, just off the square. Amazing amount of gold. We were there during Easter week and got to hear a free organ concert

The Centro Historico of Quito is amazing. It has 14 churches and a very rich History. This one is very nice.

This is one of the best/most ornate Churches (if not the most ornate) in Quito. Well worth a stop. Keep in mind that it is continues to be a place of worship. You also cannot take photographs inside.

I've seen a lot of churches in my travels, this one is unique and well worth the visit! Even though you can't take photos, it is still a great way to spend 30 mins. I would suggest getting a tour guide from somewhere, be it a guided Quito city tour or something like that, because there is a lot to... More

Stunning! A must see when you're in Quito. Iglesia located a couple of blocks from Presidential palace. We toured it on Monday, tie in watching the presidential ceremony at 11 p.m. in park across from Presidential palace. Visit the Iglesia, then walk back to Presidential palace at 2 to wait in line to get tickets to tour the Presidential palace.... More

Iglesia de La Campania de Jesus, located in the colonial section of Quito, was just fabulous. Almost everything inside is covered with gold leaf, and we were told that the value of all the gold leaf would cover the national debt. We visited this church as part of a tour with Gate 1 Travel. Rightfully so, our guide was so... More

Beautiful intricately decorated church in Quito centre, a really serene and peaceful place to visit. Beautiful statues inside as well as paintings and iconography. The exterior is huge, imposing and beautifully preserved. It has a real charm and sense of history. Lots of locals in and out showing their devotion. It's lovely to see a working church with such a... More

$5.00 will get you in to the incredible structure whose architecture alone is beautiful, but seeing the interior covered in gold leaf is spectacular.
