    The Virgen is one of the most fascinating monuments in the city of Quito. It is located on a small hill in the center of the city and you can see from a long distance.

    Quito by night is very nice and specially the colonial part because it has lights all over.
    The chuches are beautiful and with the lights they seem like in a movie.
