The Church of the Society of Jesus, known colloquially as la Compañía, is a Jesuit church in Quito, Ecuador. It is among the best-known churches in Quito because of its large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leaf, gilded plaster and wood carvings. Inspired by two Roman Jesuit churches — the Chiesa del Gesù and the Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola — la Compañía is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in South America. It is Quito's most ornate church and the country's most beautiful.
