Overview

First, we’ll go to the "Inti-Nan" In-Situ Museum (at about 2400 meters above sea level, about 7800 feet), where you can see replicas of the Ecuadorian Highlands and Amazon and, of course, to learn about the Quitu-Cara culture, their comprehension, long before the Geodesic Mission, on the stars, and, therefore, the empowerment of the term "Center of the World"; this visit takes about 45 minutes (entrance not included).

The historical buildings, the streets, the parks... All is well maintain in Quito. For a capital of South America they can be proud because many others have garbage around and so much graffiti that the beauty is completely hidden. But not the historical Quito. If...More

Quito, Ecuador's capital, is a city with a very long history and tradition, full a beautiful churces and building. The weather is dependent on the season, but usually clouded and not too hot.
