What To Expect

Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania
This beautiful Church is among the best-known churches in Quito because of its large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leaf, gilded plaster and wood carvings. Inspired by two Roman Jesuit churches. La Compañía is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in South America. It is Quito's most ornate church and the country's most beautiful.

Spanish Baroque architects profusely decorated the church's interior with gilded ceilings and exterior with intricate stone carvings, making it recognized today as the most awe-inspiring and beautiful church in Quito and even in Ecuador.

However, Ecuadoreans were really close to losing this beauty, when the church's interior got fire. Since then, experts in repairing this type of monuments have been trying to replicate exactly how it used to look. Nevertheless, new gold is different than old gold and it is easy now to see and differentiate what areas where mostly affected.
