Everything Else

You can see the church in the valley below. this is Quito's oldest colonial church. The square outside has a statue of Francisco de Orellana who set out from here on his travels to the Amazon. A gentle walk down -you might want to take a taxi back up!

Food Scene

Hotel Quito was the Quito's first top class hotel. Slightly dated now it still enjoys a fantastic setting with great views. Good pool club and rooftop restaurant (great buffet breakfasts!)

La Casa del Alabado is an outstanding museum of pre-Columbian Art. The house has been beautifully restored and is one of our favourites. Good place to grab a coffee too.
