YOUR FOOTPRINT IN QUITO
“It seems a lie, but the Church of La Compañía, one of the most important baroque expressions of the continent, is covered in its interior with sheets of 23 carat gold leaf, which were carved one by one by the artists of the Quiteña School. Everything inside shines with the golden color present in every corner”.
“The people are very friendly. We have seen people walking dressed in formal suits, and we are in a capital, even so nobody was running or pushing other people, all walked calmly, without stress. It was very nice, I would like London to have some of that”.
“Quito is still a city with a life of its own, where its original inhabitants carry on their usual routines and where traditional trades are still practiced: hatters, shoemakers, chawarmiski, wood spinners (yes, children play here with wooden tops still) or hobbers”.
