This was an unforgettable exposure to a brilliant artist whose sense of outrage at injustice and deep empathy for its victims was everywhere apparent even as the emotional power of his work and the generosity of his spirit gave it a rare verisimilitude. This is...More

This is well worth the rather long but inexpensive taxi trip. The artist's house is magical. Our tour guide was charming and informative. My only criticism is that photography is not allowed in either the house or the museum. I can't think why.

The compulsory guide (english was available with a russian accent -spanish would have been much later) was not very pleasant but did not manage...More

Guayasamin is a truly amazing artist, his work is moving, his house is a work of art in itself. It was more than a visit to a museum, it was an experience!

Generally considered Ecuador's best and most famous artist, this is his former residence. The decoration and collection is that of an artist and is at times exquisite, strange and compelling. Probably need about 2 hours to see both.

"The Chapel of Man" (La Capilla del Hombre) and Guayasamin Museum(the artist Oswaldo Guayasamin's residence) are in the same area up the hill. Taking a taxi is essential under any weather condition as it could be quite a walk. Try to get in the residence/museum...More

it's pretty out of the way up some steep hills. get a taxi, it's a cheap fare and a difficult walk, especially if it's hot.
