Quito Easter Festival (Betty Jaramillo)
The Quito Easter Festival is a unique cultural event in Ecuador. From the balconies of the hotel you can overlook the procession route and the Plaza de la Independencia. The procession begins at midday to honor the hour which Pontious Pilate condemned Jesus to death. It is estimated that around 90,000 people participate in the procession with tens of thousands of spectators lining the streets in Quito's Old Town.
