The Capital of the Middle of the World was awarded “South America’s Leading City Destination 2023” at the World Travel AwardsQUITO, ECUADOR, August 28, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ —
The Capital of the Middle of the World consolidates its position as an international destination. Quito was present at the Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony 2023, held on 26 August on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, where it was recognised as the leading tourism city in South America thanks to the votes of industry professionals and end consumers.
The World Travel Awards commemorated its 30th anniversary by rewarding excellence in travel. The event also rewarded companies, organisations and destinations through a wide range of awards.
Quito, located in the heart of the Andes, has become a leading destination thanks to the growing influx of tourists who choose it every year for its historic centre, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Convent of San Francisco and the Church of the Society of Jesus, a jewel of Baroque architecture. Also, for its traditional neighbourhoods such as La Ronda or San Marcos, where you can enjoy culture and art.
The city has impressive landscapes and exceptional natural spaces such as the Andean Chocó or the Cotopaxi volcano, places where you can find a wide variety of flora and fauna.
The distinction is also attributed to the wide variety of adventure tourism options, as well as its outstanding gastronomic and leisure offer.
