Please Note

Opening Hours: Open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Sunday Closed on Holidays Address: Mariano Calvache E18-94 y Lorenzo Chávez, Bellavista, Quito Telephone Numbers: 2446-455 / 2452-938 Website: www.guayasamin.org Information: Your pass includes access and a free tour to Casa-Museo Guayasamín and Capilla del Hombre Attraction Instructions: Museum admission includes guided tours around the "Capilla" available in Spanish, English and French starting every 20 minutes. The tour is about 45 minutes per museum, so we recommended to schedule at least 2 hours for this visit. How to get to "Capilla del Hombre"? Walking: Although the attraction is located in a very central place in the city, we don't recommend walking because of the steep slope. However, if you're up for the hiking challenge, get to 6 de Diciembre and Bosmediano and go up the cobbled street. Once you arrive to the TV channel Ecuavisa, turn right and keep going up until you reach the destination. By Bus: You can take the line "Vencedores de Bellavista", which runs along Avenida Eloy Alfaro before starting the ascent. This line does not run on Sundays. By Taxi: This is what we would recommend in most cases. The fare will depend on your starting point, but Capilla del Hombre is centrally located and taxis are cheap in Quito! Attraction tips The attraction features lockers for backpacks or luggage. Photographs are not permitted inside the museum; however you may photograph the exterior and gardens.
