Museum
“Yet perhaps the most popular museum in Quito is the adjoining La Capilla Del Hombre and Museo Guayasamín ($8). If only visiting one museum in Quito, this is likely the best bet. And particularly so for art-lovers. Oswaldo Guayasamín is arguably Ecuador's most famous painter. Even for those who have never heard of this artist, there's much to learn about Guayasamín at this museum. Most visitors depart with a newfound respect and fascination for Guayasamín. “The Chapel of the Man” is his masterpiece building. Guayasamín personally designed it before his death (1999) to showcase his masterworks. The neighboring home/museum offers a peek into Guayasamín’s life. It also shows off the artist's prized collections, his bedroom, his working art studio, and more of his art pieces”

Church
“ La Compañía de Jesús is Quito’s most ornate church and a standout among the baroque splendors of the Old Town. Including its Moorish elements, perfect symmetry (right down to the trompe l’oeil staircase at the rear), symbolic elements (bright-red walls are a reminder of Christ’s blood) and its syncretism (Ecuadorian plants and indigenous faces are hidden along the pillars). Construction on this marvelously gilded Jesuit church began in 1605 but wasn't completed for another 160 years; the main altarpiece alone took 20 years (former president Gabriel García Moreno is buried here). The made-in-the-USA organ is circa 1889. Check out the chiaroscuro-style series of paintings called the 16 Prophets by Nicolás Javier de Goríbar and the large canvas Hell and Final Judgement from 1879 – it's still a mystery what happened to the original, painted by Hermano Hernando de la Cruz in 1620. Quiteños proudly call it the most beautiful church in the country, and it’s easy to see why.”

Park
“Perfect for exploring, camping, pedaling, walking and stopping to take advantage of the spectacular viewpoints and trails without losing sight of the birds. The most important green extension of the urban area, and very popular among its inhabitants, goes up to the eastern edge of Quito and offers breathtaking views of the Cumbayá Valley. It consists of four sectors: parking and playgrounds; the eucalyptus forest; an area without trees, with large-scale sculptural installations; and picnic areas. Visitors enjoy its many hiking and cycling routes, home of the handsome Carpenter Dorsiescarlata and other birds.”
