Museum of the City
在基多Morales和Rocafuerte交叉路口，有一幢看上去比较不错的建筑，这就是免费参观的基多城市博物馆（Museo de la Ciudad）。该建筑已被联合国教科文组织指定为世界文化遗产，1995年，政府使用与原有建筑相同的材料，对受损的区域进行了修复，并于1998年正式成立。 博物馆的前身是距今有400多年历史，占地10200平方米的圣胡安迪奥斯（Hospital San Juan de Dios）医院。当时是这里的第一家医疗机构，它独门独院，石刻精细，古香古色，其最大的亮点是使用古石在露台上建造的多立克式柱廊、石头门廊和石铺。医院前医生们收集的显示医院历史的大大小小各种物件，在这…

“ La Compañía de Jesús is Quito’s most ornate church and a standout among the baroque splendors of the Old Town. Including its Moorish elements, perfect symmetry (right down to the trompe l’oeil staircase at the rear), symbolic elements (bright-red walls are a reminder of Christ’s blood) and its syncretism (Ecuadorian plants and indigenous faces are hidden along the pillars). Construction on this marvelously gilded Jesuit church began in 1605 but wasn't completed for another 160 years; the main altarpiece alone took 20 years (former president Gabriel García Moreno is buried here). The made-in-the-USA organ is circa 1889. Check out the chiaroscuro-style series of paintings called the 16 Prophets by Nicolás Javier de Goríbar and the large canvas Hell and Final Judgement from 1879 – it's still a mystery what happened to the original, painted by Hermano Hernando de la Cruz in 1620. Quiteños proudly call it the most beautiful church in the country, and it’s easy to see why.”
