Iglesia de la Merced with John our guide - Quito


2 K Views

I hired this guide to help me make a video about the Church of Mercy (Iglesia de la Merced) in Quito Ecuador. He was great about reminding me to shoot this direction or that. Construction began in 1538 so this makes it the oldest church in Quito. My guide actually got his early education in the school attached to the church. We peeked through the crack between the doors into the courtyard of the convent where he used to play. It sure makes a difference to know a bit about the place you are walking through. I also attended a mass here so I got the whole package of visiting this ancient church. Oh, and his name. Yes, that is what he really goes by!
