4. El Panecillo

Much like the statue of Christ the Redeemer sits overlooking Rio de Janeiro, El Panecillo stands watch overlooking Quito. This volcanic hill overlooking Quito’s Old Town features a statue of the Virgin Mary at its summit. The statue is very unique. It is one of the only representations of the Virgin Mary to feature angel wings. It was constructed of more than 7,000 separate aluminum pieces and stands 45 meters tall.
