Why locals love it

This wonderful place is located in the old Military Hospital built by the German architect Francis Schmidt in 1900 under the rule of Gen. Eloy Alfaro. This was the sanatorium for mental-ill-people but later was transformed in the Hospital of the Army. This institution functioned here until 1970s when a new hospital was constructed.

Why you should visit it

This impressive Neo-Classical building was totally recuperated in 2008 in order to be converted in the Contemporary Art Center of Quito. This is a place in constant movement because they are always presenting new exhibits of Ecuadorian and foreign artists.

Special tip

Take a great pic of the city view from the parking lot.
