Quito Old Town Tours

Quito’s unmissable historic center, or Old Town, extends over 320 hectares (790 acres) and is the largest historic center in the Americas.

Made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1978, Quito has taken great pride in restoring its colonial buildings and sprucing up its public spaces to ensure that both locals and visitors continue to breathe life into the old town.  The streets and plazas constantly buzz with colorful locals and vendors selling everything from roasted peanuts to giant roasted pigs, while tourists drink it all in as they shuffle between the overwhelming number of restored churches and chapels, convents and monasteries, mansions and museums.

And of course, there are plenty of bars and restaurants and shady plazas to rest in when sightseeing fatigue kicks in.

Practical Info

Plaza Grande (Independence Square), marks the center of Quito Old Town which extends between La Mariscal in the north and El Panecillo in the south.
