We begin in the northern part of the city with a tour of the most important commercial areas, where most of the hotels in Quito are located. Then we head to the historic centre to visit the Basilica del Voto Nacional, where we will make a brief stop and explanation to later reach the Plaza de la Independencia, where through a walking route you will see the Cathedral, the Government Palace, the Archbishop's Palace and the La Compañia Church, recognized for its adornments and gold altars.
This tour will continue toward the Church of San Francisco, built in the seventeenth century. (Entrance to churches is not included). Then headed to the Mirador del Panecillo (entrance included) a place renowned for its beauty, where you can admire a beautiful landscape of colonial and modern Quito.
The extension included continues towards the northern part of the city heading up to the Middle of the World City (entrance is included) where the monument that divides the Northern from the Southern Hemisphere will be observed. It was built during the XVII century when a French Expedition defined the precise location of the equatorial line.
