Teleferico has 8 cabins, each one with a capacity of 6 passengers; it takes about 17 minutes to get to the top. The cable car rises from 2 950 meters to 4 100 meters above sea level.

  • Convento San Francisco: San Francisco, the most imposing of all Quito's architectural monuments, is at once a temple, a series of chapels, and a convent. All this together takes up nearly two whole blocks, and rises up above a wide stone paved court. Shortly after the foundation of the city in 1536, Fray Jodoco Ricke began the construction of the temple and the convent. On entering the church, one finds oneself under a low ceiling, decorated with small paintings, surrounded by ornamental groupings of cherubim arid flowers, all in the Italian style. The central nave is high, and the justly famous transept is supported by four main columns. There are chapels on either side, all with beautiful altarpieces. That of the main or high altar is covered in carvings, and curves around the presbytery.
