About Quito

Quito, Ecuador’s capital city, is located at an altitude of 2850 m (above sea level) in a valley at the foot of Pichincha volcano (4794 m). On clear days, you can even see several distant snow-capped peaks from the Avenue of the Volcanoes, including the Cotopaxi, Ecuador’s highest active volcano.

With a population of over two million, Quito is Ecuador’s second largest city (only the coastal city of Guayaquil is larger). Quito enjoys a comfortable climate year-round between 13 and 24 C°. Ecuador’s small size allows for easy and short travel from Quito, with most destinations requiring less than a day by bus.

Having been a powerful and rich political center for both, the Incas and the Spanish conquerors, Quito’s well-preserved colonial historic center provides an impressive array of churches and museums. In 1978, its historic center was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.

The city has the best-preserved, least altered historic centre in Latin America. The monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, and the Church and Jesuit College of La Compañía, with their rich interiors, are pure examples of the ‘Baroque school of Quito’, which is a fusion of Spanish, Italian, Moorish, Flemish and indigenous art.
