No degree of latitude!
The capital of Ecuador, Quito, brings the past to life in its museums, monasteries, the carved stone facades and golden altars of its many churches. And on this tour you can enjoy the scenic, Colonial and artistic side of the city, then stand with a foot on each hemisphere at the Centre of the World - the Equatorial Monument 20 miles north of Quito, which marks the exact middle of the world, latitude 0º.
Visit the Ethnographic Museum inside the monument, which shows the different Native American groups living in Ecuador. Beside the monument there is a colonial-style town, complete with main square, church, post office, bullring, cafes, restaurants and many gift shops with postcards and souvenirs. And you will also be given a certificate for having crossed the Equator.
