The beautiful center of Old Quito, the Grand Plaza is an anchor of everyday life for thousands of locals.
Surrounded by four buildings that underscore the historical influence of religion and government on Ecuadorian culture (the Presidential Palace, the Municipal Palace, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Cathedral of Quito), La Plaza de Independencia, as it is also known, is one of the city’s best people-watching spots.
