The Mitad del Mundo, the equatorial line monument, is 25 km noth of Quito. Mitad del Mundo translates to 'middle of the world'. The 30 m high monument is a remnant of the Spanish-French Expedition in 1736 to 1744, when the position of the equator was determined by Charles de la Condamine.

Here you can stand with one foot in the Northern Hemisphere and the other in the Southern!

Day 1: We drive to the Mitad del Mundo, the plaza along the Equator. Here we will have lunch in a typical Ecuadorian restaurant. Then we visit the ethnographical museum located in the plaza. Drive back to Quito.
