El Panecillo

You can see the Panecillo from all parts of Quito. The hill used to have a temple worshiping the sun on it, but now it displays the Virgin of Quito, a beautiful aluminum statue that is 45 meters tall.  We often use her to tell where we are in the city. The views from the Panecillo are extremely goregous. On a good day, you can see all of Quito from the hill. The unfortunate part is that they light it up at night, so when you go during the day all you see are wires and lights in all of your pictures, but it is still beautiful. Here are some of my views of Quito from El Panecillo:

Here is an older picture I have of the Panecillo from the
