Ecuador is one of those rare places where pretty much everything you see is worthy of a snapshot. Not only are the landscapes gorgeous — forests, mountains and green fields in equal measure — but the urban architecture of Ecuador is also a sight to behold. The soaring cathedrals, cobblestone streets, and colourful market stalls come together to create a tapestry of old-world beauty and charm.

Let’s take a look at life in Quito, the capital city of Ecuador:
