It’s known that Sucre really liked Quito, for this reason married with a woman from here, Mariana Carcelén, Solanda Marquise. Then, in 1828, he acquired the ownership of the current streets Sucre and Venezuela, and established his home there.

 

Two years later he was murdered in Colombia, returning from one of the meetings where they discussed the collapse of Gran Colombia, Republic in that time encompassed the current nations of Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela.
