Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania, Quito

#1 of 1,448 in Things to do in Ecuador
Quito's famous Baroque church, Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania dazzles visitors with its golden interior. Dripping with extravagance, the church is adorned head to toe in gold leaf decorations, perhaps explaining why it took 160 years to build. Equally impressive-- though not nearly as golden--the church's symmetrical facade gives visitors a taste of what's to come inside. Have a look at the indigenous Ecuadorian faces depicted subtly on the pillars.

  • Baroque and exquisite, this monument to the colony is a gem to be visited in Quito. We were astonished with so much gold.

  • Admission is from 9:30, but it is a little late (usually in Latin). It is difficult to understand how to enter without explanation and guidance. Let's talk to the attendant person near the entrance fence. Or, like us, there's a way to get in and out of the back of the Organization (we'll pay the entrance fee). Photography prohibited inside. I sell a postcard at the back shop, but the opening is after 10:00 (it is a sense of Latin time). Other souvenir shops, such as Kotopaxi jigsaw puzzle, were sold.
