A beautiful spot above the city, with incredible views. The night views are spectacular also, and there is a restaurant and nightclub with a light show as well. Worth a visit.

Has bathroom for small $, beautiful cafe at top, picturesque views and signature Quito signage for cool photo op. Nice paved pathways for biking/running. Great views of city and surrounding landscape. Take stairs up from street steep, but doable.
