  • Visiting the house and studio of the artist Oswaldo Guayasamen in Quito is a must for any art lover. Generously designed gallery with many of the artist's works, guided tour of the residence, souvenir shop and videos from the artist's life from the 20th century. Magnificent view over Quito.

  • Next to the Capilla del Hombre, the Casa-Museo de Oswaldo Guayasamín is one of the best attractions in Quito. It is a hymn of love for the life, art and humanity of this great Ecuadorean painter. Decorated with many pieces of colonial art, pre-Columbian and contemporary, the house is beautiful and translates the taste and history of the artist. I strongly recommend it.

  • This is an amazing place. Guayasamín is an excellent artist at the tours are great. You can also go through his house which in my opinion was even better than the Friday Kahlo house. If you do one thing in Quito, do this! 8$ for adults but discounts for students if you have the card.
  • Brilliant museum in the artist's former home on a hill overlooking Quito. The highlight of the visit was a video of him at work in his studio, where we were standing, painting the portrait hanging on the wall behind us. It was like he had just left before we arrived.
