"El Quinche" Quinche by MalenaN

Quinche Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 50 photos

On my last day in Ecuador in 2011 I read about the new Seven wonders of Quito. One of them was Santuario de la Virgen de El Quinche, situated about 60 km away from Quito. So, I thought this could be an interesting place to visit when I came back to Ecuador in 2012.

Many pilgrims come to El Quinche to get blessings from the Virgin of El Quinche, and to thank her for miracles that has happened.

    Interesting little page about your side trip from Quito. A well deserved pioneer badge.

      Thank you for visiting my page Albert! Even if the bus took much longer than I had expected I'm glad I went to El Quinche to see the church.

      Yes it is impressive and it was worth going there, even if the bus journey took much longer than I had thought.

    Santuario de la Virgen de El Quinche is really worth to be included in the list of new Seven wonders of Quito!
