Metropolitan Cathedral of Quito (Spanish: Catedral Metropolitana de Quito), known simply as la Catedral, is the Catholic cathedral in Quito, Ecuador. Located on the southwestern side of the Plaza de la Independencia (La Plaza Grande) in the Historic Center of Quito, the best-preserved, least altered historic center in Latin America. In Spanish, (El Centro Histórico de Quito) was constructed on what was once a 16th century Inca city at 2,850 meters above sea level in the Andes Mountains near the Equator in Ecuador.

The Colonial Center of Quito is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches over 790 acres and contains 130 monumental buildings, 5,000 smaller properties in addition to the numerous 500 year old Churches and Convents.
