The glittering gold all over the church is awesome. A must see. Craftsmanship and the precision work on the gold is amazing. You cans spend hours just looking inside. Fully worth a visit,

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

La Campania was exceptionally beautiful with its ornate gold baroque style architecture. We couldn't take any pictures as they're not allowed but enjoyed the peaceful ambience and beauty of this church. It was less than a 5 minute walk from Hotel Patio Andaluz where we stayed.

“Gold and more Gold”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

Aside from the four dollar entry fee, the Compañia de Jesus church is a real event. I especially liked the picture of the punishment awaiting the the sinners on the right side of the church near the front door. Adulterers, drunkards and usurers beware!

“Central Old Quito”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

The renovations will take your breath away. It and San Francisco are within comfortable walking-distance of Hotel Gangotena and well worth the visit.

“Most Beautiful Church in the World”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

You might think the title is misleading, however if you consider that the church took about 160 years to be built, then you understand the hidden treasure you have in front of your eyes,

You can not take picture inside, but that is not needed you will be amazed and its very difficult for you to forget the fantastic experience of being there. Perfectly carved wood, covered with Gold leaf.

There is a 4 USD admission. I suggest you to avoid going on Sunday's Mornings as tourist visitors are not allowed during Masses.

Pay attention to The Baroque style details inside and in the facade.
