Capilla del Hombre information
A few blocks away from the Museo Guayasamín stands one of the most important works of art in South America, Guayasamín’s Capilla del Hombre . The fruit of Guayasamín’s greatest vision, this giant monument-cum-museum is a tribute to humankind, to the suffering of Latin America’s indigenous poor and to the undying hope for something better. It’s a moving place and the tours (in English, French and Spanish, included in the price) are highly recommended. They usually leave upon request during opening hours.
