Quito's undisputed treasure, its astonishing Historic Center sits high up in the Andes where the rolling mists enhance the mystical of an archaic age that prevails in this old center. To walk in this patrimony of humanity is to step into a bygone era, the ambience of the past unbroken, the tremendous energy of the present abundant in the plazas and streets, bustling with life. Undiminished by the passage of time and the ferocious forces of nature, Quito's historic centre is the best preserved, least altered in all of Latin America, conserving the milieu of Colonial times with all its richness and diversity.
This glorious historic centre is a maze of narrow streets lined with exquisite monasteries, churches and antiquated houses, all examples of the most beautiful colonial architecture on the continent. Its famous wealth of religious paintings and sculpture abundantly decorate many of the temples and museums, pure examples of the Quito School of Art, a fusion of cultures and styles. This unique, unequalled inimitable historic centre undoubtedly deserves the cultural patrimony of Humanity, awarded to Quito by UNESCO in 1978.
