Artist's Description

Ecuador. Quito. Church of la Compañía de Jesús. Interior.
Canon EOS T1i
Canon EF-S 18-200
inspired by a wonderful trip
Quito, formally San Francisco de Quito, is the capital city of Ecuador, and at an elevation of 9,350 feet (2,800 meters above sea level). The historic center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. Quito was declared the World Cultural Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1978.
The Church of the Society of Jesus (Spanish: La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús), known colloquially as la Compañía, is a Jesuit church in Quito, Ecuador. It is among the best-known churches in Quito because of its large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leaf, gilded plaster and wood carvings. Inspired by two Roman Jesuit churches — the Chiesa del Gesù (1580) and the Chiesa di Sant’Ignazio di Loyola (1650) — la Compañía is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in South America. It is Quito’s most ornate church and the country’s most beautiful church.
