Definitely a must see in old town Quito. Don't miss the shopping in the underground accessible from the plaza.

“Stunning church in Quito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

This really is a must. So beautiful inside! Very Moorish, as it was begun in the 1530s.

“Beautiful church & plaza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We got in for free, but we were that at the end of a Mass, so I'm not sure if they normally charge admission. It is quite beautiful inside and looks somewhat distinct from some of the other churches in the historic downtown. Very close to other big attractions. Definitely worth a visit.
