High in the Andean foothills, Quito remains one of the world's most photogenic capital cities, featuring two dramatic mountain ranges as its backdrop.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Casa del Alabado and Termas de Papallacta. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania and Catedral Metropolitana de Quito. And it doesn't end there: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, admire the masterpieces at La Capilla Del Hombre, and pause for some photo ops at La Virgen del Panecillo.
