The last one of my Ecuador series: overlooking the historic centre of Quito with lots of churches and monasteries. Separating the Northern older part of town from the South is El Panecillo hill with a huge madonna-statue (virgen de Quito). Before the invasion of the Spanish conquerors there used to be an Indian temple, destroyed by the conquistadores.
Quito`s historic center is very clean, colorful and pretty. On the outskirts there is a lot of poverty and a high crime rate, too.
The weather is often cloudy like this, only rarely the beautiful mountains in the vicinity are visible.


Klasse Stadt-Darstellung. Hätte mehr Beachtung verdient. VG Martin
