La Companía de Jesús
It is one of the most well-known churches in Quito because of its central nave, which is covered in seven tons of gold leaf. It was modeled after the Church of the Gesł and Sant'Ignazio in Rome. Styled in Latin American Baroque, it took Jesuit priests 160 years to finish construction. Design elements include a near symmetrical facade, Moorish influence in the nave, and artwork by artists of the Quito School of Art. The bell tower was the tallest structure in colonial Quito, but was toppled by two earthquakes in 1859 & 1868. In the past twenty-years, the church has gone under heavy restoration, especially after a fire damaged the interior nave.
