Setting Description:
The capital of Ecuador is arguably the most beautiful city in South America. It is located at 2,800 meters above sea level in a high valley at the base of Mount Pichincha about 15 miles south of the equator, giving it a wonderful spring like climate year round. Its full and formal name is "San Francisco de Quito", reflecting both its Spanish and Incan origins. Franciscan monks accompanied the Spanish conquistadors and founded one of America's first Catholic churches (begun in 1584), in what is now called the Plaza de San Francisco, in the heart of colonial Quito. This city of nearly a million people is set in a valley flanked by mountains, several snowcapped volcanoes are visible from the city on a clear day. Quito has plenty of colonial architecture, and modern building has been strictly controlled in the old town since 1978, when it was declared a UNESCO cultural heritage site.
