Dagmar Penaherrera and Christof Tononi the owners. Dagmar studied foreign trade and Christof fine Arts (sculpture) at the University in Quito. After a few years living in Switzerland we came back to Ecuador and started a touristic project in the Amazon, running a sustaintable lodge in the province of Pastaza. We bought this house in 2007 from a 3 brothers that received the house inheritance from their father Guillermo Latorre. He was and Ecuadorian Painter and cartoonist of the XX Centrury, whose themes are political, religious, intellectual with social tint. Guillermo Latorre, who studied at the School of Fine Arts in Quito, counted among its teachers to foreign artists Paul Bar and Jose Maria Roura Oxandaberro. In 2013 we had the idea to restore our house but we had not so much money to do it. So we trade with Alborde architects, in exchange their labor as a form of rent. Here, bartering replaces typical capital investment with a direct form of exchange between two parties.
We are a few steps away from Plaza San Blas, and the old historical Center. The Plaza grande (presidential Palace), churches, Sucre Theatre, museums art exhibits and more are within 15 min walk. A few minutes walk you will find the Mercado central (central market), restaurants, small supermarkets and shops. If you want to go to other parts of the city, you can take a taxi anywhere; they are very cheap. Getting Around Taxi service is cheap in Ecuador and a taxi will take you in a minute to the Main Plaza and within 10-15 minutes to modern Quito. On Plaza San Blas you can take the public transportation METROVIA or TROLE which will bring you from the center of the city to the south or north Bus terminal.
