Stunning interior, beautifully restored and maintained, if you have to wonder at the sacrifices that must have been made by the indigenous community to fund such extravagance. And equally, what Jesus would have made of it all. But for the tourist in 2019, compulsory viewing.

A beautiful and historic building - well worth a look at. A guided tour is only about $5 and takes around 20 minutes. No photography inside but the gold leaf is amazing!

The church visit was memorable. They did not allow photos, so you will have to go see it, as opposed to find it online. It is brilliant. The tour was great too.

What an incredible church this is....if you only visit one in Quito, make it this one. We first saw it lit up at night from the outside, which is pretty impressive, but the interior is breathtaking. Intricate Moorish patterns with red inlays, and gold leaf...More
