About Quito, Ecuador:
Quito was founded in 1534 by Spanish explorers, and is built over the ruins of an ancient Incan city. It is the capital of Ecuador and has many Catholic places of interest. Despite previous earthquakes, the city has survived and is well preserved. The older churches are known for the ‘Baroque School of Ecuador’, a stylish blend of Spanish, Flemish, Moorish and native art. There are many churches in the city, but we have listed a few here that might be of special interest.
