QUITO, ECUADOR enjoys a spectacular natural setting in a long narrow valley high in the Andes. It was a major Inca city and was almost totally destroyed by the Incas themselves in an effort to halt the Spanish Invasion.

The well preserved Spanish buildings give the old city character - now a World Heritage UNESCO centre - and a new modern high rise quarter has grown around it.
