This church is very impressive, mostly for the gold decor. It is a must, as a visit. Its best if you have a guide to explain the details. It is very ornamental. look out for the spiral staircases!

Amazing visit to this beautiful Old church. Daniel, our guide, explained the history behind this churn.

This church is a perfect reflection of the art that placed Quito so high. Don't miss the "hell paintwork" inside and the "well-endowed cherubin" on the outside, right in front of the main entrance.

Much history and well presented place. Worth a look. Colonial for sure and what you might expect if you have been to such sites before.

This is an amazing church with the most highly decorated interior I have ever seen. Not a square inch is left ungilded or decorated in some way. The effect is dramatic and beautiful - quite magnificent!

Astounding how long and how much money went in to Compania. Opulent and sprawling - not to be missed.

Puedes conseguir info en la pagina oficial de la fundación, sin embargo el precio de la boda rondaba entre los 500 dólares.

Yes, they have specific schedules for masses and of course every sunday the church is closed for visits and it is only open for locals to attend a mass.
