Basilica del Voto Nacional


The Basilica of the National vow is a Roman Catholic church located in the historic center of Quito. It is the largest neo-Gothic basilica in the Americas. Big stained windows were designed on the basis of geometric figures.

The first stone was placed on July 10, 1892. First masses in the nave started in 1924.
