Its primary attraction is a beautifully preserved historic quarter, where grand colonial-era churches and the presidential palace are all situated within a dozen square blocks of narrow streets and various public squares. Further north are Quito's best parks and a new botanical garden, while to the east is the trendy, bohemian community of Guapulo and its spectacular views down to the other valley. Also within an hour of downtown is the Middle of the World monument, right on the international Equator line.
