Granadero de Tarqui

Every Monday at 11 AM outside the Palacio del Carondelet, Quito the ceremony of the Changing of the Guard takes place. It is a formal event, with the Granaderos de Tarqui, and their beautiful horses parading around the Plaza Grande.  Here is one of the guards and his horse just before the beginning of the event.  or follow us on facebook
