Amazing pictures galahad, Quito is around 9300 feet over the sea level... for those who asked, Quito is also rounded by a lot of active volcanoes.

Quito is a magnificent place. Ecuador was under what Viceroyalty during the Spanish era?

Ecuador in the colonial era had the name of "Real Audiencia de Quito"

I knew Quito had the biggest "old town" in the Americas, but thanks to you I have found out its old town is the biggest in the world. Everyone should visit that city which is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful in Latin America. Those churches are real treasures!
Cuenca and Guayaquil are great cities, too.




What you call Ecuador was under the Viceroyalty of Peru, and a part of it was under the Viceroyalty of New Granada, created in 1717.
