Quito offers a wide variety of tourist places to come and go. The places tell us about the history of Quito, its widespread culture, beliefs and diversity. The places tell us about its life styles, single daily, nights, enjoyment options and its assets.
The city's crown jewel is its 'Historical Center,' or 'Colonial Town of Quito' a Unesco World Heritage Site packed with colonial monuments and architectural treasures. Everyday life pulses along its handsomely restored blocks with 17th-century facades, picturesque plazas and magnificent art-filled churches.
