Fodor's Review

The Museum of Colonial Art, housed in a restored 17th-century colonial mansion, includes colonial furniture and 16th- to 18th-century sculpture and paintings by Miguel de Santiago and various other members of the School of Quito. The amusing Vices and Virtues of the European Countries is a series of 12 allegorical 18th-century paintings by colonial masters Samaniego and Rodríguez.
