Quito a Capital city with a dramatic setting

Nestled in a central valley more than 9,000 feet up in the Andes, flanked by active volcanoes such as Pichincha, Quito is one of the world’s highest capital cities, and few can be more dramatically situated. It boasts a bustling modern downtown area, La Mariscal, beautiful natural parks, and the Mitad Del Mundo monument and park, marking the Equator, but it’s the Old City that attracts most attention, and which helped make it one of UNESCO’s first two World Cultural Heritage sites.
