We have just visited Cotacachi, Ecuador, north of Quito. A mural by Pavel Eguez is near the community cultural center; it is in the style of the famous Ecuadorean artist Guayasamin. Then just down the street is the plaza and classic church. This one features carved wooden (relatively) modern altars that continue the classical appointments and traditions.
