Mitad del Mundo: Visiting the equatorial monument is a unique and fascinating experience. Hundreds of years after the indigenous of today’s Ecuador set Catequilla as the middle of the world, a French expedition arrived to confirm geographically the measurement.
At the north of the city below the equinox Andes, the famous monument settles in the equatorial line. This is the middle of the world. What to do (at your own pace)
- Take a picture of yourself with one foot in each hemisphere of the planet.
- Check your weight! A person weights less in the middle of the world than in any other part of the globe (Newton’s law).
- Visit the Ethnographic Museum.
Exploring (with the Five Senses)
- Enjoy all the unique and fun experiments at the Inti Ñam Museum, proving that you are exactly in the middle of the world.
