Quito is beautiful!
The old city - wow! Old, beautiful, majestic, and dozens of churches. The one above was made for San Francisco. The Spanish built them over those places where Incans worshiped the sun. Most were built so that, at a particular time of day, the sun would shine directly through the stained glass windows onto the altar, on a golden figure of Christ, the better to show them who the real God was.
