DAY 2: Quito City Tour
The human occupation of Quito dates back thousands of years. Prior to the arrival of Spanish conquistadores, the main cultures in the area were the Quitus, as well as the Inca, whose empire spread across vast stretches of South America. The city was colonized by the Spanish and recognized as a city in the mid-16th century. In 1978, together with Kraków in Poland, the entire city became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site. After breakfast at the hotel, visit the old town and meander down romantic narrow streets to see the colonial Churches of San Francisco, La Compañia, and other historical landmarks. This visit is followed by a short stop at the top of El Panecillo Hill where the impressive statue of the Virgin Mary is located. It’s a great place for photos of panoramic city views.
In the afternoon, visit the Equator Monument, which highlights the exact location of the equatorial line according to the Franco-Spanish mission that determined its approximate location. It’s also the location of the Ethnographical Museum that showcases the indigenous culture and ethnography of Ecuador. After all the visits, we will return to your hotel.
