A fascinating collection of pre-Columbian art awaits for you here. Is one of the great attractions in the city.
Set in an almost mythical residence, in front of which neighbors cross themselves when walking by the inscription on its lintel – it reads “Praise the Lord” or Alabado sea el Santísimo Santo – Museo Casa del Alabado is in fact brimming with pre-Columbian genius. Over five thousand pieces that span an enormous 5,000-and-some-year legacy predating Colonial rule, are displayed in a most elegant, beautifully lit, and comprehensive permanent exhibit. This is one of Ecuador’s most beautiful museums… don’t leave Quito without visiting!
