Quito Kirchen eng

If you like baroque churches, you are in good hands in Quito. There are several impressive churches in the old town alone. The Iglesia de la Compañia de Jesus is the most ornate and is described by the Quiteños as the most beautiful church in the country. The cathedral in the main square contains some masterpieces – you can see a painting of the Last Supper, where the disciples dine on guinea pigs. Other religious buildings worth seeing are the church and monastery of San Francisco and the Iglesia de Santo Domingo.
