Centro Cultural Metropolitano - Culture And Arts Quito - Ecuador

The Centro Cultural Metropolitano is a great place to see colonial art and temporary modern art exhibitions on display throughout the building, which is a renovated colonial complex. The building also has a huge Spanish library comprised of literature, sciences and economics. One of the most appealing attractions of the building are the third-floor patios, which are perfect areas to people-watch in the Centro Histórico and to admire the architecture of the churches that surround the building. There is also a café on the first floor.
