Quito

Quito might as well be called the city of firsts. The Ecuadorian capital - along with Kraków in Poland - was the first World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO. It is also the first capital in terms of height from sea level (nearly 3,000 metres) as well as proximity to the equator (which, after all, the country is named after). 

The volcanic summit Pichincha lies near enough to the city’s eastern limit to be part of the skybox - no other capital in the world is actually built into the side of a live volcano!

All of these factoids only serve to highlight Quito’s singularity; not only does the city serve as a beautiful bubble in time (with entire neighbourhoods unchanged since the early nineteenth century), it is also a true indicator of mankind’s resilience.

To visit Quito is to learn how we refute our ephemerality - even when it manifests as kilotons of molten rock bubbling next to our homes - simply by persisting. And thriving.

The Quito Experience

Your time in Quito is sure to leave an indelible impact upon you. Be sure to begin with a journey to the Historic Centre of the city, which has also been adjudged the best-preserved, least-altered Site of its kind by UNESCO.

This region is filled with churches, cathedrals, and museums. Even the plazas hark back to the city’s original foundations; to walk upon them is to trudge over history.

The Basilica del Voto Nacional is a good place to get the lay of the land; it is the largest neo-Gothic cathedral in the Americas, with ornate tapestries and impeccably-maintained walking paths on the higher floors. It might take a while to work through the various observation decks, since you will have the whole of Quito stretching away below you; but each view is sure to be more breathtaking than the last.

Attractions outside the Heritage Site include La Mariscal and La Zona; the former a place of intersection between tourists and locals, and the latter as Quito’s nocturnal, cosmopolitan heart. Both places provide ample spots for refreshment and entertainment; they are also the best places to make new friends and learn more about Ecuador.

Finally, the aerial tramway (known as the Telefériqo) plies regularly from Cruz Loma; it will take you to a height of over 4,000 metres up Pichincha. The Telefériqo opens into its own visitors’ centre, complete with a theme park, food courts, and fun activities.
