What's unique?

Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, is nestled high in the Andes Mountains at an elevation of over 2,800 meters (9,350 feet). It is located in the province of Pichincha and is known for its breathtaking scenery, rich history, and vibrant culture. Quito is a city that seamlessly blends the old world charm of its colonial past with the modern hustle and bustle of a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its historic center, known as the Old Town or Centro Histórico, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers visitors a glimpse into Ecuador's colonial past with its well-preserved plazas, churches, and narrow cobblestone streets. Beyond its historic charm, Quito is also surrounded by majestic mountains and the city itself is surrounded by panoramic views of snow-capped peaks. With its fascinating blend of history, culture, and natural beauty, Quito is a must-visit destination for any traveler looking to explore the wonders of Ecuador.
