Why locals love it

This is the biggest church of Quito that you can see from all over the city. Their towers are a popular spot for those who like the adrenaline and want to have the best view of the historical and modern city. It is very popular for teenagers to get up the tallest tower and take pics.

Why you should visit it

This is one of the largest Neo-Gothic religious buildings of Latin America whose construction started in 1890s and it is not finished yet, even it was opened officially by the Pope John Pope II in 1985. The gargoyles of the outside represent animals from Ecuador.
