Mitad del Mundo
Daniel Cevallos Rd 1064, Quito, Ecuador
Venture to the Middle of the WorldWelcome to the "Middle of the World." Actually, Ciudad Mitad Del Mundo is a little askew from the middle of the world – the equator lies about 800-feet north of the marked line. Nevertheless, in this city, located in Pichinita, you can climb inside a special monument, commemorating the French explorer who calculated the world's equatorial line. After, head through a small museum which shows examples of indigenous culture.
