Old town-Cooking Class-Equator

Quito

You will start a perfect day in Quito with while visiting the idyllic Quito Colonia City and a splendid cooking class (Independence Plaza, The Cathedral, San Francisco Square).

This city was colonized by the Spanish and recognized as a city in the mid-16th century. In 1978, together with Kraków in Poland, the entire city became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site. After breakfast at the hotel, visit the old town and meander down romantic narrow streets to see the colonial Churches of San Fransisco, La Compañia, where you will step into South America’s best example of Spanish Baroque architecture church, La Compañia De Jesus and other historical landmarks.

After breakfast, your English-speaking guide will pick you up for a walking city tour. The colonial center of Quito was already named world cultural heritage by UNESCO in 1978.
