We’ve seen a lot of churches on our trip but this is very memorable for the amazing gold decoration and detail. You would never be bored going to mass here. It’s a good size and a pleasure to visit.

Yet another huge and very impressive church in Quito. No charge to enter this one. Located on one of the old town walking routes which are all worth doing.

The church is beautiful, and is the first one in the USA. Must stop to take photos. They have a little store inside the church if you are catholic you can find lots of things

This is one of my favorite churches in Quito, it has so much history and probably the best paintings from the colonial era. they are still restoring some work but its magestic construction is very impressive
