Plaza de Independencia - Quito

Plaza de Independencia

Plaza de Independencia: A different city ?

Because of the music, we took another road, and like this we arrived at this big Plaza.

I was kind of overwhelmed by the beauty of the lighted colonial buildings.

And I must also tell you that there were almost 28 days in between my first visit to Quito and this one. So like this I was really convinced that I had missed this square at my first visit. I did not recognise these buildings.
Wow, so beautiful, it was almost impossible that I had been here, a month ago.
Till the moment that one of my fellow travellers, told me that the big building on the other side was the Cathedral, and then I started to remember the buildings as the looked like by daylight. Indeed this was the biggest square of old Quito The plaza de independencia.

How strange, that a city-view can change at night.

More nightviews in the travelogue.

Plaza de Independencia: Dancing on the Plaza

There was loud music on the Plaza. And the group of young students were dancing on the Plaza.

An open Ranchero was waiting for them in order to transport them to another Plaza, where they could continue their celebration.

At the other side of the Plaza there was another group of young people dancing and singing.

Plaza de Independencia: Music in the streets

As we left the restaurant La Cueva del Oso, we heard music, singing and yelling.

Of course, we wanted to satisfy our curiosity.
Like this we arrived at the plaza de Independencia, where a group of young people were celebrating.

There was life music, and lots of singing, yelling and dancing.

It was a kind of celebration of university students.

Dress Code: a sweater for the chilly wind

Plaza de Santo Domingo - Quito

Plaza de Santo Domingo

Iglesia de Santo Domingo: Quito at night

Our hotel was at the corner of Plaza de Santa Domingo. And we had a splendid view over the Plaza, that is why we all enjoyed the view and the lighted Church on Plaza de Santo Domingo.

The first night we did not walk around because we were pretty tired after a long flight and the acclimatisation to the altitude.

But on our last day in Ecuador we had another chance to discover Quito at night.

Dress Code: a sweater as it can be very chilly at night at 2800 m altitude.

Address: Plaza de Santa Domingo
