“Inside church is gorgeous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Our Celebrity X tour guide taught us so much about the history of Quito through the eyes of this church and grounds. The gold and design in the church was spectacular. The garden is beautiful though small. Many birds are in this garden. It was very enjoyable.

“Great view of old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We visited the San franciso church in which the area reflects resturants and it is a great place for people watching. We enjoyed this area very much.

“It was Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

It was nice to see but not impressive. If you happen to go by it, then stop and check it out. There wasn't much going on in the plaza on the day we visited.

“Not a favorite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This plaza is littered with pigeons. The surrounding architecture is great, but the plaza felt dirty and crowded. Tour hotel was a half a block away, so we passed through here several times, but we never felt the need to linger.

“The Plaza de San Fransisco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

The Plaza de San Fransisco is a beautiful plaza surrounded not only by the beautiful church, but numerous small shops and restaurants. Many of the local people use this plaza as a meeting place and it is a relaxing place to sit back and people watch.
