Iglesia de la Merced, Quito

Oddly enough, I found myself discussing the Iglesia de la Merced, an early 18th century church located in the historical center of Quito, Ecuador, earlier tonight at dinner here in Beirut.

It’s a coincidence that’s likely entertaining only to me, but it did provide a good excuse to go looking for a few images from the church which fit nicely for ornate, the theme of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge. Enjoy. 🙂

For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the blog’s 672nd straight, was snapped on April 1, 2015 in Quito, Ecuador.
