La Basilica in Ecuador’s Old Town Quito was one of my favorite architecture experiences during my visit in August. I took a series of videos that give you a sneak view of the climb up multiple levels via a spiral staircase and three sets of wrought iron ladders above the clock tower, already at a height to give those afraid of heights something to think about. Refer to my blog post with 3 short videos of the views from the top as well as the experience climbing it from the clock towers to the very top. Secondly, take a look at a post I wrote on Old Town Quito itself which includes some magical photos of its people, buildings and everyday life.
On-the-ground, I continued to marvel over La Basilica’s presence – its angles, colors and intensity. If you can visit when no one is likely to be there, you’ll have a much more authentic experience and ‘quiet’ time to really be present with the views and the incredible architecture.
