“A must see”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The area is always bustling with excitement; the local population enjoying themselves; children having fun; be sure to eat at the restaurant that has outdoor seating in the corner of the square; true Ecuadorian Food, wonderful empanadas.

“More of transit to Plaza Grande”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

There were a lot of people here but mostly passing through. The church closes from 12:30 to 3:30 so plan accordingly. We stayed very near this square so passed it several times. Did not feel like staying as we did with the Plaza Grande.

If you found the review helpful please note below.

“Cobbled Streets & Monastery”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Once again, I was in awe of this scenic view in Quito!

If you're a people watcher and love cafes - this is the place to be.

You can have a great view of Quito since it's built on an incline (rumored to be over a Incan temple).

“Inside church is gorgeous”
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”
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.
