Quito – info
This unique city is nestled in the Andes at an incredible 2850 metres above sea level and overlooked by the active volcano Pichincha in the west of Quito. The town unites most of Ecuadors important financial, cultural & administrative associations.
Formerly the area has been inhabited by several indigenous tribes and has formed an integral part of the Incan Empire, until it was occupied by Spanish settlers in the 16th century. Quitos historic centre is very well preserved & houses some of the first UNESCO world cultural heritage sites.
Things to do in Quito:
Museo Nacional: Iconic building which includes a grand collection of Ecuadorian art as well as pre- & post colonial archeological artefacts.
Pichincha Teleférico: This sky rail takes you up the side of the Pichincha volcano to heights of over 4000 metres where amazing views & a further summit trail are on offer.
La Mariscal: To start your stay in Quito, go for a wander & ‘get lost’ in this historical quarter & UNESCO world heritage site.
Basilica del Voto Nacional: Curious cathedral that boasts Galapagos- dolphins, monkeys & turtles instead of gargoyles & for good reasons is partially incomplete – let its lift take you up to greater heights!
Floresta quarter: Fashionable neighbourhood off the beaten tourist track – good food, music & art scene.
El Pobre Diablo bar: Kick back with a glass of wine whilst taking in some inspiring live tunes (located at Floresta).
