Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador
1 Kudo
The word "ecuador" means "equator" in Spanish, and the nation of Ecuador is located on the equator in South America. The capital of Ecuador is the city of Quito. Just a few miles south of downtown Quito is a monument named "The Middle of the World." It was built on the exact location of what was believed, hundreds of years ago, to the equator. Nowadays any tourist with a smartphone can see that the location is a couple of hundred meters off, but the monument is still impressive.
