All That Glistens
In The Ecuadorian Capital, What's Old Is New Again
Perhaps the best way to explore Quito is to start at the top, with a climb up the main spire of the gorgeous Basílica del Voto Nacional. From there, you can look down on everything this UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer, much of it fresh from years of renovations that have revitalized centuries-old palaces, theaters, and the like. Of course, it has its share of modern high-rises, fashionable shops, and trendy bars and restaurants as well.
