We had never heard of the painter Guayasamin until we visited here. Wow! Worth every minute we spent. A remarkable artist and his house and studio. Worthwhile for everyone and a must see for anyone interested in art.

Lovely location with great views of Quito on a nice day. Guayasamin's contemporary work must have it's supporters but I'm not one of them. The museum and house is interesting, although a bit difficult to get to. It was rated one of the top 10...More
