Quito or San Francisco de Quito, the capital city of Ecuador in South America, was the world's first city to be declared UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage Site along with Poland's Krakow in 1978.

Peppered with parks and crafts markets, Quito's status as a UNESCO world heritage site and its sweeping Andean panoramas has made this highland city an up-and-coming tourist destination, according to a Reuters report.

The main attractions of Quito, which caters for all tastes, are its colonial center, magnificent churches, cobblestone streets and quaint squares.
