How to Get There

Chapel of Man (Capilla del Hombre) is located on Mariano Calvache in the Bellavista neighborhood in northern Quito, right next to the Guayasamín Museum. For your personal security, it is best to take a taxi that will leave you at the entrance. The closest bus stop is Lorenzo Chavez y N32, which is about a one-minute walk away—which is not advisable in the dark.

When to Get There

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, from morning until evening. Come early or before closing hours to avoid the crowds. Peak season in Quito runs from June to September, coinciding with the Ecuadorian dry season. Throughout the year, the high-altitude climate is springlike with chilly nights. To experience the city in festival mode, visit from February to April for Carnival and religious holiday Semana Santa.

Wildcard

Eternal Flame and Tree of Life As you enter Chapel of Man, a gentle flame springs from the center of a solid red circle. Meant to evoke peace and hope, the Eternal Flame is dedicated to those who lost their lives defending human rights. In the courtyard, look for the Tree of Life where Guayasamín and his dear friend, Ecuadorian poet Jorge Enrique Adum, are buried side-by-side under a tree the artist planted himself.
