Quito's "Old Town" in the south of the city is also known as the Centro Historico (Historic Centre) or Colonial Quito. In a compact area you will find many ornate churches, attractive streets full of fine examples of colonial houses and three main squares ("plazas") in which to sit and watch the world go by.

We will explore heritage from the Inca Empire, the Spanish invasion, the independence phase, and finally all about Ecuador and Quito's ancient history in Colonial times, as well as the present local.
