Colonial Quito, Quito: 182 reviews and 486 photos
Unfortunately, the Basilica was closed when were there. But we could walk around and like this it was easier to admire the magnificent decorations.
In the middle of the square next to the Basilica there was a kind of cellar. We were lucky as they opened this cellar for a guided group, and like this we also entered the cellar.
It was a big room filled with beautiful tombs.
The local guide told his group that these tombs were for important people like presidents, etc.
As it seemed such a special and sacral place, I kind of forgot to make a picture.
