Quito, the capital of Ecuador, has a setting that few cities can match. During the 13th century it was the prosperous center of the Kingdom of Quitus. It later became the northern capital of the Inca Empire. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Colonial architects built formidable temples, monasteries and mansions, creating an urban jewel designated by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. Quito's artistic creativity awaits the visitor in cosmopolitan galleries and boutiques filled with contemporary paintings, sculptures and exquisite traditional crafts.

Every stay in Quito should include a visit to the Colonial sector, the old and charming city with 400 years of Spanish heritage. Also, a visit to the Center of the World, the very center of the earth, at latitude 0°.
