La Basilica

Some images of Quito's Basilica del Voto Nacional, a huge neo-Gothic church built on the western slope of the city, as you enter the Centro Historico. Built in 1873, this church houses thousands of coffins (!) in a huge crypt beneath the cathedral. I went in and looked at them! No photos of that today, though. Just filtered light, huge pillars, and gorgeous arches. Enjoy!!

(there will always be stuff for sale.)
