I enjoyed this monument and the view and the little shopping stalls. Was my first day in Ecuador or I would have bought more in the stalls. Found them superior to most others I encountered in bigger malls

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours as it will provide lovely views of Quit particularly if you aren't planning to do the cable car at Telefico.

This is a very nice statue resting atop the hill where she overlooks the Basilica and all of Quito. It was quite cloudy late afternoon when we arrived. Might be better to arrive earlier in the morning.
