One of the three main squares in Quito old town. Many people pass this by because it is tucked away in the southern corner. Most prominent feature is the pointing statue in the middle. This is Antonio Jose de Sucre and he is pointing to Pichincha Mountain where he won a battle which finally ended Spanish rule in Ecuador. If you are here towards the end of the day, there is a sense of danger. There is a trolley bus station in the square, I suggest getting one of these or a taxi to your next destination. I foolishly walked from here down Quayaquil and was mugged just as I left the old town, this happened at 5pm on a Sunday.
