At the bottom of the hill from the Mariscal, stands the neighborhood’s centerpiece, the Sanctuary of El Guápulo , a beautiful church built between 1644 and 1693. It has an excellent collection of Quito School art and sculpture, and a stunning 18th-century pulpit carved by master wood-carver Juan Bautista Menacho.
