El Panecillo

Spanish for little bread loaf, El Panecillo is home to "La Virgen de Quito", a large statue which protectively keeps its vigil over the historical center. Visitors can enter the statue for a panoramic view of the Historical Center. Every Christmas, El Panecillo features a large nativity scene with beautiful spires of light surounding it.
