In the famous Plaza San Francisco, Casa Gangotena brings new life to this mansion that once belonged to one of Quito’s most illustrious and influential families. Its neoclassical architecture, recognized as part of the Old Town’s UNESCO World Heritage status, wraps around a charming patio adorned with palm trees and an original fountain.
Inside, rays from the Andean sun bathe the art deco-style rooms in shimmering light. Reflecting the splendor and elegance of a golden age, they boast antique mirrors, painted ceilings, and sumptuous wall frescoes.
From the rooftop terrace, as you sip a delicious local coffee or signature cocktail, you may catch a glimpse of the snow-capped summit of Volcán Cayambe.
