The Gothic styled Church of the Virgin of the Holy Water (Nuestra Senora del Agua Santa), fronts the main plaza of the Andean highlands city of Banos in central Ecuador.  The city has become an adventure destination for foreigners as well as Ecuadorians.  It is known as the "Gateway to the Amazon" because of its location on the Pastaza River in the Amazon River Basin.
