UNESCO World Heritage-listed Colonial Quito

UNESCO World Heritage-listed Colonial Quito

Renewed and regenerated in recent years, Quito’s historic heart is as fine an example of Spanish colonial architecture as you’ll find anywhere, and justifiably a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Compact and atmospheric, even a brief tour here underlines that it’s no staid museum-piece, but alive with buzzing plazas, the country’s finest galleries and inviting cafes that can happily disrupt the most carefully planned travel itinerary. Things settle late on, however, so you’ll be taxi-ing over to the new town, where the pace of life quickens, and the latest bars and restaurants fill up with adventurous, informed travellers and locals alike.
