Cheap Flights to Quito
The Quitus were Pre-Columbian indigenous peoples in Ecuador who founded Quito, which is now the capital of Ecuador. The inhabitants' existence spanned from 2000 BCE to the beginning of the Spanish conquest of the city in 1524. Their occupation spanned from the strip of land from Cerro del Panecillo in the south, to plaza de San Blas in the centre, the area where these first inhabitants lived. Today, this strip has extended to become the city it is now. The Quitus are responsible for the capital's name and are of unknown relation to the town of Iquitos.
