Quitu


The Quitus were the aboriginal occupants of the now capital of Ecuador, Quito. The inhabitants' existence spanned from 2000 B.C. to the beginning of the Spaniards' 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 is the area where these first inhabitants lived. Today this strip has extended to become the great city it is now. The Quitus are responsible for the Capital's name, and are of unknown relation to the town of Iquitos.
