“Climb the Steps to Itchimbía for Views and the Crystal Palace It's a healthy climb up the many flights of stairs on the eastern side of Quito’s Old Town to reach the area known as Itchimbía. Itchimbía is where that big orange Quito sign makes for great photo ops overlooking the city. So after catching your breath from climbing the stairs, go check out the sign and pose for a selfie. Itchimbia is also home to Quito’s Crystal Palace. This massive structure of iron flanked with glass walls was shipped over from Germany over 100 years ago. It's said to resemble the Las Halles market in Paris, and as such, has served as a market itself. Visit some cafes in the area like Cafe Mosaico or Vista Hermosa and, there view is incredible and don't forget to drink hot chocolate with cheese”
