Quito is the capital of Ecuador and is the most Spanish city in the New World. The city is in a transitional state, with new buildings being constructed in the midst of the old colonial city. Volcanoes, some active and some not, form a majestic backdrop to the city and its magnificent natural setting. The sheer number of  architectural styles around the city make Quito an open-air museum rivalling many European towns in quality and diversity. Old Quito, the colonial core of the Ecuadorian capital, is included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites. The city has many colourful markets, and the many diverse peoples of multicultural Ecuador, are all there buying, selling or simply watching the world go by.
