Quito: Basílica del Voto Nacional

Construction of this amazing Neo-Gothic basilica began in 1892. The basilica arose from the idea of building a monument as a perpetual reminder of the consecration of Ecuador to the Sacred Heart. The basilica was blessed by Pope John Paul II in 1985, and it was consecrated in1988.
