The Votes Are In: Quito's Seven Wonders

The votes are in for Quito’s Seven Wonders.

As reported a few weeks ago in Quito’s Seven Wonders, the public was invited to choose the city’s best sites. The competition ran from April until July 31. Over 14,000 people participated in the on-line voting.

A few surprises made the list—as well as some of the most well-known churches and plazas.

And the winners are:

  1. The Chimbacalle Train Station

  2. Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús

  3. Convento de San Francisco

  4. Basílica del Voto Nacional

  5. Santuario de la Virgen de El Quinche

  6. Plaza de la Independencia (Plaza Grande)

  7. Virgen de El Panecillo

The wonderous sites will enter the list of World Heritage Treasures (Tesoros del Patrimonio Material del Mundo) and will be promoted internationally in tourism news, including the Discovery Channel.
