If you visit la Capilla del Hombre, you should include this site in the visit. Guayasamín’s home is wonderfully converted to a museum and you learn immediately that he intended it as a gift to Ecuador, which he clearly loved. There is an array of...More

Unforgettable. Highly, highly recommended. Amazing residence - an architectural gem - filled with beautiful works of art, both pre-colonial and contemporary. The grounds and views are stunning. The Chapel of Man is deeply moving. Don’t miss it.

I enjoyed the art and the home. Might not be for everyone. I wasn't aware of the artist until now. Love the inspiration behind the art. Photography is not allowed in the museum or home, but outside is okey. We had a tour. Not sure...More

See my previous review! This is a must see and is paired with the Neighbouring museum. It is a bit of a drive from the old town but an amazing display of the reflection of the socioeconomic strife of the South American indigenous people.

I went there by the advice of an Ecuadorian friend, not knowing what to expect, but definitely the museum and the story of Oswaldo Guayasamin exceed what I thought I was going to see. People working on the foundation are extremely gentile, polite and they...More

it's pretty out of the way up some steep hills. get a taxi, it's a cheap fare and a difficult walk, especially if it's hot.
