Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands travel guide

Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands - Quito (Chapter)

10th Edition Aug 2015

This is the Quito chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ecuador & Galapagos Islands guidebook.

A capital city high in the Andes, Quito is dramatically situated, hemmed in by mountain peaks whose greenery is concealed by gray afternoon mist. Warm and relaxed, traditional Ecuadorian Sierra culture - overflowing market stands, shamanistic healers, fourth-generation hatmakers - mixes with a vibrant and sophisticated culinary and nightlife scene.
