Ecuador — Quito, Basilica del Voto Nacional


Basílica del Voto Nacional

Quito is home to the largest neo-Gothic basilica in the New World. It’s called the Basilica del Voto Nacional, which translates to Basilica of the National Vow. As you can see, it’s quite an impressive structure sitting atop a hill in central Quito.
