Quito was declared by the United Nations as a Cultural Patrimony of Mankind. This city offers visitors all you can imagine in an incomparable valley setting surrounded by the Andes! You will certainly enjoy getting to grasp the vibrant heritage of this city. Many consider that Quito has the best preserved colonial center in the world, depicted by striking colonial architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, government buildings, monuments, and an impressive history. Some highlights include a visit the Presidential Palace and a stop in "La Compania," a church that was envisioned as the centerpiece jewel of the Kingdom of Quito, and today considered the most beautiful church in Latin America.
A visit to the following sites is scheduled and it works out very nice since must of them are fairly close: El Panecillo, Congress, Independence Square, San Francisco Convent, San Agustin, Santo Domingo,and Crystal Palace. These venues add a different flavor to the local scenery, and will become an unforgettable memory for visitors.
