Spanish conquistadors first arrived in Ecuador in 1534, and remained a powerful presence until the 19th century. Visitors to Ecuador can expect to see some of the world’s best-preserved examples of colonial design. Quito’s historic district is the most complete Spanish colonial city center in Latin America. Ecuadorians are proud of their independence, but the 16th-century architecture in nearly every city still echoes the baroque tastes of their European forbearers. Colonial cathedrals in Quito, Cuenca, and Guayaquil remain important cultural centers.
