Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania, Quito

4.8
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.

  • Richly decorated church, considered the most beautiful church in Ecuador. The eye is delighted from the moment you enter this avalanche of gold leaf.
