Quito's Hidden Treasures & El Teleferico
Explore the hidden treasures of Quito on this full day excursion, taking in the less visited sites of the city such as San Diego monastery and Santo Domingo church on the far side of El Panecillo, the iconic hill which watches over the centre.
Feast your eyes on outstanding colonial artworks in San Diego monastery originating from Quito and Cuzco schools, including one of Quito's finest pulpits, carved by the indigenous woodcarver Juan Bautista Menacho. Climb the narrow stairs to the bell tower and walk along the rooftop for great views.
Enjoy visits to the Santo Domingo church and La Compania church, before tucking into a traditional lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon take 'El teleferico' cable car to enjoy dramatic views of Quito and of the nearby 'Avenue of the Volcanoes' before returning back to your hotel.
