For $2 you can climb to the top. The climb is a doozy! Your legs will be feeling it. But the views are spectacular. It’s definitely worth a tour.

Never ever visited a church with such a abundant amount of gold. You can not take any pictures which will make this visit even more special, because you will have to install all the beauty on your natural hard drive (brain ;-) Tip : take...More

First time I went to Quito I was very disappointed because this temple was closed; therefore, this time I made it my first destination. I had very high expectations from readings and pictures, and was still blown away by the beauty of this baroque style...More

A key historic and cultural landmark; Quito's most important visitor site. It's worth spending time here, not just observing details, but also soaking up the splendor.

This church is so over-the -top with its interior gold leaf that you feel if you stopped for too long, they'd cover you in gold leaf! No tour available and no photos allowed, even without flash. Postcards for sale in the gift shop showing some...More

Such an impressive and unique space, the interior entirely of gold. Technically not meant to take photos anymore. We had to ask for a tour and were not offered one at the door. Locals free and all free for services. Otherwise it was about $5...More

You do have to pay to enter this church, but it is worth the small entrance fee. I've seen many churches through Europe and South America that are elaborate; but none to match the interior of this church. Every possible space is covered in gold...More

This is a great Baroque style church in the heart of Quito. Inside is plated in gold leaf and the architectural touches are worth the visit.

Supposed to be 'the' place to visit in Quito, but I found it disappointing. I suppose that my judgement is coloured by my experience of churches in Cusco, Peru, so maybe I am being a bit unfair.

Worth the admission price. A unique church, with an excellent tour. Best church visit in Quito. Seemed like the whole church was designed to dazzle.

It takes about 1 hour, However, if you specialize in Colonial Art or any other thematic visit... It can take up to 2h30min or 3h. I think is one of the richest places in South America regarding to Colonial and Barroco Art.

I’m not sure, however each fee’s are very reasonable, some just take donations. I don’t believe we paid more than $5 pp at any of these churches and we visited several. You might try Quinto Tourism for that question.

Puedes conseguir info en la pagina oficial de la fundación, sin embargo el precio de la boda rondaba entre los 500 dólares.
