An old Mansion built at the turn of the last Century has been completely restored in order to achieve the former splendor of the Ecuadorian Republican era. The Mansion used to be the home of an Ecuadorian Tobacco Tycoon, who entertained his guests and buyers lavishly in the large spaces on the Ground Floor, while he and his family utilized the First Floor as their private residence.
The property is part of the Architectural Historic Society of the downtown area of the Capital according to the World Heritage Foundation, which considered Quito to be the first city of the organization according to UNESCO.
The Mansion as well as the entire surrounding neighborhood was designed by an Italian Architect, who was influenced by the architectural style of his native country. Many homes and private houses in this particular area show the splendor and the excellent craftsmanship of this bygone era.
Boutique Hotel Mansion del Angel overlooks the well known Alameda Park and when passing through the park, the Historical Part of Downtown Quito may be reached within 10 minutes. The park is also the home of the first Astronomic Observatory.
