Casa de la Cultura Benjamin Carrion Quito Ecuador
Casa de la Cultura Benjamin Carrion (CCE) Quito Ecuador is a wonderful place to discover Ecuadorian culture.
During my visit, I learned about the CCE’s new developments and the beautiful museums and theatres that are a part of the center. There are numerous galleries dedicated to different kinds of art. The selection ranges from contemporary to indigenous styles of art.
The complex is quite large and one could easily spend the day there exploring. There is a lot to see and very little crowds. The CCE although very active in its calendar of promotions is little known to tourists. There are never any lines and its easy to move about through the galleries.
I also had the chance to meet the President of the CCE, Camilo Restrepo Guzmán. He just recently accepted this new position and will soon be launching many new ideas and projects at the CCE.
Thank you Jeimi Chiluisa, Journalist at Casa de la Cultura, for your assistance with a tour.
