Set at an elevation of 9,350 feet (2,850 m), Quito is the second-highest capital in Latin America. The setting here is beautiful, with the snow-capped Pichincha volcanoes set off to the west. The city has ample historical features, as evidenced by its being granted a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. Visit Old Town to see historic churches, palaces, and other buildings. Head to La Basílica to climb a 377-foot (115-m) tower and enjoy great views of the city.
