The pilgrimage to El Quinche

Not far from Quito airport lies the pretty village of El Quinche with its beautiful pilgrimage site. Every year in November, tens of thousands of pilgrims travel on foot from Quito to El Quinche to implore the Virgin Mary some favor. On the other side of the main road you will also find a beautiful Indian cemetery where it is sympathetically busy, especially with All Saints ‘and All Souls’ Day.
