Mitad Del Mundo, San Antonio de Pichincha

#5 of 370 in Things to do in Quito
Stand between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres at Mitad Del Mundo, marked by a compass-like monument erected to show the exact location of the Equator. Stand with one foot on either side of the line for a unique photo opportunity, and get your passport stamped to say you've visited the Earth's midpoint. Here's the thing, though--it's not the real Equator, as the park's designers missed it by about 250 m (820 ft). Put Mitad Del Mundo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Quito trip app.
