Santo Domingo church in Quito


                                                The church of Santo Domingo and its monastery represent one of the most important religious structures in Quito. Its history is marked by fortunes. One of them began in 1880 with the arrival of a group of Italian priests who initiated a process of modernization that included aesthetic changes in the temple. On the one hand they changed their color, modified the Baroque altarpieces and their pictorial themes. On the other, his neoclassical reforms responded to a new cultural idea brought from Europe. It was an indigenous market and now it is an outdoor art exhibition site.
