Synopsis

 

Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Quito, Ecuador.
 
Quito was founded in 1534 on the ruins of an ancient Inca city. Today, two million people live in Quito. It was the first city to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978 (along with Krakow in Poland).
 
Quito is located in north-central Ecuador in the Guayllabamba river basin, on the eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active stratovolcano in the Andes mountains. Quito is the second most populous city in Ecuador, after Guayaquil.  In 2008, the city was designated as the headquarters of the Union of South American Nations.
 
The elevation of the city's central square (Plaza de la Independencia or Plaza Grande) is 2,800 metres (9,200 ft), making Quito the second-highest administrative capital city in the world (after La Paz, Bolivia).
