Summary
Founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city at an altitude of 9,350 feet, the capital of Ecuador has—despite the 1917 earthquake—the best-preserved and least-modified historic center in Latin America. The monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo and the Church and the Jesuit College of La Compania, with their rich interior decorations, are pure examples of the "Baroque School of Quito," which is a fusion of Spanish, Italian, Moorish, Flemish and indigenous art.
