Quito Vacation

About Quito

Boasting a dramatic location nestled high up in the Andean foothills, Ecuador's capital, Quito, was built upon the foundations of an ancient Incan city and was one of the first cities to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its main draw is a beautiful historic quarter that is situated a few miles from the Equatorial Line. It is an atmospheric area that blends 16th and 17th-century churches, picturesque squares, European and Moorish-influenced architecture, indigenous styles and colorful markets brimming with local handicrafts and goods. Day and night the Mariscal area, the city's main tourist and nightlife area, crackles with a vibrant energy, while the vast Metropolitan Park offers respite from the city action.
