Basilica del Voto Nacional: Quito, Ecuador [00:49]
For $2 US you can explore the entire Basilica del Voto Nacional, a Roman Catholic church, in Quito, Ecuador. You walk across a plank to get to one of the many steep staircases in the basilica to get to a tower that provides an amazing panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and homes. You can even climb up to the highest point in the clock towers!

I (at least temporarily) conquer my fear of heights and walk across a wild rickety "bridge" that is built into the top of the cathedral ceiling. Then I climb three very steep ladders to get to the top of the tower in the Quito Basilica. This is the most bizarre cathedral I have ever been to by far. Incredible views though! A Quito 'must see'!
