Interesting church

There’s a lot of history involved with this church. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside the baroque style church inside. But it’s definitely worth a visit.

Absolutely Fantastic!

Not sure if we liked the Gothic outside architecture best, or the insanely beautiful gold decorated inside. Either way, one of our favorite building in all of Quito!

Part of our main interest to visit Ecuador was to get to experience their colonial architecture and unique churches, Compania was one of the highlights during our days in Quito, amazing place with walls covered in gold, simply unbelievable! So much history and beautiful ornamentation all around!

This stop was part of our walk through the old city on our guided tour. We were able to spend some time in the church. Just wow.

If you only have time for 1 church then this is it. The interior is so beautiful, especially the altar. As this place is also used for weddings, please note that you won't be allowed to take photos if there is a wedding going on. A must visit.

All golden :)
Dec. 2019
Not much to look at from outside, but yes to see once stepped inside this modest-looking cathedral (or a church as is called iglesia) is an "all-golden spectacle" of not just the glittering altars & shrines (needless to describe the splendor of the main altar) but also the glitter on "pretty much every inch" of the interior to lay eyes on (the pillars, the arches & the ceiling; really virtually all except for the floor!). And for those who have been to Sao Bento in Rio de Janeiro (the church part of that big convent or monastery in downtown Rio), this cathedral or church here in Quito is I would just say "every bit" matching to that one when it comes to the amount of gold glitters inside.

And yes in the close vicinity which is just a very short walk to the left after coming out of here is the city's "main cathedral" Catedral Metropolitana (quite a worthwhile one for a visit where apart from its "impressive main altar" are also other beautiful shrines, tombs & pretty-great-sized paintings on its walls) and where right in front of that cathedral is the city's "main plaza" Plaza Grande which is just a "very vibrant" area to walk around or to sit down on a bench or to shop for souvenirs (and where also on one side of that plaza is the long building with front-side pillars which is the Presidential Palace). And also, just as close to this church as Plaza Grande & Catedral Metropolitana (but in a different direction which is to the right after coming out of here followed by another right) is Plaza San Francisco & its respective church or convent which is a "long building" on one side of that "spacious plaza" (although only a relatively small part of that long building is allowed to the public).
