Mitad Del Mundo, San Antonio de Pichincha

#5 of 371 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 .

  • It may not be the true equator line but it's close enough. Nice site with little museums here and there to poke around in. Lots of huts selling various items of interest and a few places to eat, drink...  more »
  • I really liked how it is organized, you can do everything a little and to get to know Ecuador and its history is perfect, I went with my children of 9 and 4 years and do not get bored at all, explore everything and there is great variety of food and desserts.
