Quito Things to Do: 454 reviews and 1,200 photos
On the west side of Plaza Grande, you'll find the Palacio del Gobierno (Government Palace), which is the seat of government and the residence of the president of Ecuador. You'll notice some guards out front and visitors are not allowed.
On the north side of the plaza is the Palacio Arzobispal (Archbishop's Palace), a gleaming white, Neoclassical building, which in recent years has been converted to accommodate shops and a tourist office.
The east side of the plaza holds the surprisingly new (build between 1968 and 1973) Palacio Municipal (City Hall), which despite its newness, doesn't stick out like a sore thumb amidst the other colonial buildings.
