Day 1: Hidden stories of Quito

During this day, we will explore, in the company of our cultural guide and historian, the erotic history of Quito, from colonial times to the beginning of the 20th century.

Our tour will begin in the convent of San Agustín with the artworks of Miguel de Santiago. What was the vision of the body and of sexuality in pre-Hispanic America? How does the vision of aesthetics and the body change with the European conquest? Throughout this tour we do some activities to unveil these issues. Then we will walk to the Centro Cultural Metropolitano to visit its controversial colonial pillory and the whole history of punishment around it. We will continue with the visit of the Cathedral where we will know the love stories of some picturesque personages of the history of Quito. As we ascend the domes we will discover the torment that persecuted Garcia Moreno his whole life. The tour will then take us to the Plaza del Teatro where we will listen attentively the history of General Ignacio de Veintemilla and the secrets of his dictatorial government. To give a note of romance we will know the house where the most famous love poem of our history was written. At the end of the day, the Camilo Egas Museum will open its doors to us to enter the work of the master and his life Don Juan. Do not miss this sensory route, with music, games and some surprises.
