Ecuador's capital city, Quito, has a long and distinguished history which dates back to pre-Columbian times, when it was occupied by the Quitu tribe.
And it is this long history that makes Quito such a fascinating city to visit and explore. Its historic centre is one of the continent's best-preserved and was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978.
There are many remnants of the city's period as a Spanish colony. The typical architecture can be best seen in buildings such as the Cathedral, which dates from 16th century, as does the Carondelet Palace, currently the seat of the national government. Apart from the Cathedral, the city is home to a number of fine churches, among which are Dominican, Franciscan and Jesuit temples.
Some of the best views over the capital are to be had from El Panecillo, the summit of which is at more than 3000 metres. This makes it sound like a mountain, but the visitor should remember that the city itself is at an altitude of some 2800 metres.
The city also boasts numerous parks, which bring a touch of colour to the surroundings. And these colours might well inspire you to make the magnificent gift of a flower delivery to Quito, and you can even make the most of our same day birthday delivery.
