About the tour

Learn about the ancient wisdom of the indigenous people of the Kingdom of Quito, who learned how to measure time and created the first solar agricultural calendar 5900 years ago. See how the old temples in the city, now Christian, before pagan, are aligned in synchrony with the sun producing luminous effects in the summer and winter solstices.

Unfold all the layers of Quiteñan history as you walk through its narrow curvy streets and plazas full of convents and crossings which were part of the Capac Ñan of the ancient Incas, a 60.000 km network of paths through the Andes built in the pre-hispanic era still used today. Hear the stories of the last Inca King and of Ruminñahui, the head of the Inca army, who burnt the city so that the Spanish couldn’t take it and then hid all the Inca gold, which started all the legends of El Dorado, and remains unfound today!
