An early pick up form your hotel (9h00 approximately) to take a ride to a tour in the UNESCO World Patrimony Old Town Quito, step into the beautiful colonial churches and submerge into its history and classic art. A rich colonial legacy with European and pre-Spanish roots fill the old city. You will start by visiting San Francisco Square and Church, the Independence Square and the main Cathedral, Presidential Palace Building, and one of the best examples of the baroque movement in South America, the iconic La Compañía de Jesus church. Most of the religious buildings here date 500 years old – it will dazzle your senses. The bizarre mixture of two worldviews (Incan religion and European Catholicism) is beautifly reflected on the Colonial City. Afterwards, enjoy an amazing 360- degree view from Panecillo Hill before riding back to your hotel of stay in Quito. * The activities and timing will depend on your preferences *
