This 16th century church was amazing! Loved the local artist's depiction of the nativity with a llama and a horse. Wandered back into the museum thru a short door in a side chapel to see the beautiful vestments and papal artifacts.

We had a guided tour of the church and grounds they were quite spectacular well worth a visit. The paintings and architecture were beautiful.
A grand building with an extremely ornate door. Inside full of lots to see, no photos can be taken worth the visit
All of the main cathedrals in Quito are worth a visit, the vast majority are walking distance to each other. This one in particular has an absolutely stunning interior.
After seeing many churches around the world, I was still amazed at the beautiful gold interior of Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus. You're not supposed to take photos inside, but they would never do it justice anyway. The detail is incredible - must visit!!
An excellent example of Mudejar style architecture inside and hand carved stone outside. The altar is handcarved wood with gold overlay that is spectacular. Art from the Quito School is also displayed. Truly a beautiful colonial church.
