Just past the 18th-century arch, Arco de la Reina , built to give shelter to churchgoers, this first-rate museum depicts Quito’s daily life through the centuries, with displays including dioramas, model indigenous homes and colonial kitchens. The 1563 building itself (a former hospital) is a work of art. Admission includes a free guided tour in Spanish. Guides are also available in English and French (an extra $4).
