This is a lovely park with great views of the town. Make sure you see the outdoor metal art and the wood carvings.

Impressive glass and iron building sitting right in the middle of the Parque Itchimbia. Used for cultural events and private parties.

This park has a great view. You can see almost 360 degrees, but to get to it you must huff and puff to the top.

Go for the views. The building offered nothing, but just walking around the park was well worth it. There was nothing in the building as they were working on it, but the views in my opinion were better than Panecillo. The historical area can be seen and there are benches about to enjoy the view. Don't miss getting your pic... More

This beautiful glass building is located on top of a hill on the east side of Quito. So you have a very special view of the historic centre, the south, the north and if you go around the main structure you can also see the valleys in the east. Oh, and also there are very interesting art and culture expositions... More

If you have time this is where you can have great views of the city. It is worth the visit. The big outdoor sign "QUITO" is also in this park where you can take photos of yourself with the sign in the background. We loved and enjoyed the views of the city from this park. Very relaxing place to visit.

Once again we went for the bird watching and saw hummingbirds. It's a big park, walking tracks, amazing views back into the city and of cathedral. Food, drinks. Lots of familes and police in car to pull us birders back on the straight and narrow, pointing at our binocs and back to the walking tracks. Pleasant way to spend a... More

We spent some days here at a conference and really enjoyed our time here. One of the nicest views in Quito, although from El Panecillo is even better.
