The government palace is one of the greatest attractions to visit during the trip to Quito. Situated on Independence Square in Quito, the origin of the Carondelet Palace (Palacio de Carondelet) dates back to the late 16th century, and since 2007 this iconic building has been open as a museum to the public. An excellent collection of art is on display, including a beautiful mural by Ecuadorian artist Oswaldo Guayasamin depicting the discovery of the Amazon River.
