- T008- CITY TOUR AND CABLE CAR ( 5 HOURS )Quito was founded in 1534 by the Spaniards and is currently considered one of the most beautiful capitals of the continent. The colonial district was deservedly designated by UNESCO as Cultural Heritage for Humanity because of its beautiful colonial treasures, specially religious buildings dating back to the 16th, 17th and 18th centures. Churches predominate, the most spectacular being La Compañía with its gold leaf interiors; San Francisco with its mixture of architectural styles and distinct native influence.Quito is not only a Spanish colonial city .

From there we go to see the most interesting places of the city passing by the Legislative Palace to admire the country’s historical stone murals, continuing to Independence Plaza, the town’s oldest colonial center, bordered by the Cathedral, Goverment Palace and Archbishop’s Palace , La Compañía church with its gold covered interior and the San Francisco church with its indian flavor, And finally drive up to the Panecillo Hill that offers a panoramic view of the
city narrow streets, spanish balconies, colorful patios, busy squares and the surrounding Andean mountains.After we continue to the skirt of Pichincha Volcano where we will find the cable cars for going up to 12.000 feet.
