The historic center of Quito, Ecuador is one of the best-preserved colonial areas across all of Latin America. It is the reason that in 1978 UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. It is a miracle that the area has survived so intact, given that in 1917 it was hit by a devastating earthquake. The Church of the Society of Jesus, also known as La Compañía, is one of the most beautiful churches in Quito’s Historic District. This Baroque-style church is known for its ornate interior, which is covered in gold leaf and features intricate carvings and frescoes. It’s considered a masterpiece of colonial architecture and art. Add it to the top of your list when exploring Quito’s Historic District.
