A walking tour of the historic center in Quito is a relaxing way to start your sightseeing in Ecuador’s high-altitude capital city.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and considered to be one of the best preserved old towns in Latin America, the neighborhood is full of old churches, plazas, and museums.
