CITY TOUR - ART GALLERIES - SHOPPING
Tour Code:
CC06 - Quito City tour - Art Galleries - Shopping
Duration: 8 hours
Departure:

Daily

Description: Quito's beautiful old town offers a world of cobbled streets, ornate baroque churches and colonial-style mansions with tiled roofs and quiet courtyards with tinkling fountains, where museums reveal the history of the City, churches and convents display the mixture of Indian artwork with Spanish and Moorish influence, and the streets with their people, a colourful mixture of architecture, costumes, culture and history.

This tour will take you through Ecuador's art history and treasures. The artistic trails of Ecuador offer some of the most rewarding roads you can follow anywhere in the world. Pre-Inca people left some of the oldest and finest artefacts and jewellery from the earliest times; the Spanish conquest brought new skills and religious fervour to the creation of superb religious sculptures and 20th Century artists produced dramatic paintings. You will experience the ancient, the historic, the contemporary and the handicraft treasures that make Quito an extra special destination for art lovers. Browse through genuine paintings, reproductions, originally designed jewellery, ceramics, ornaments and more, designed by world renowned Ecuadorian artists.
