Mitad del Mundo
During the tour you will visit the Basilica Church. Then a brief stop and next the “San Juan Mirador” will be waiting with a beautiful sight of Colonial Quito.
Walking through the colonial streets we will then stop at the Independence Plaza admiring the Cathedral, the Government’s Palace, and the Archiepiscopal palace.
Furthermore, we will visit La Compañia Church where adornments and gold altars can be appreciated, a visit to the Sagrario Church and San Francisco which was built in the XVII century Then we will be heading to the “Panecillo Mirador” a beautiful place from where a sight of colonial and modern Quito will be taken.
The city of Quito lies just 22km from the equator so it makes a perfect ½ day add-on to your trip.
We visit three different sites: The pictoresque Pululahua Volcanic Crater; The official equator monument for perfect photos with one foot in each hemisphere; and the Inti Ñan Museum where you are able to perform fascinating scientific tests which only hold true at the equator such as balancing an egg on a nail and witnessing the coriolis Force that sends falling water in different directions in each hemisphere.
Don´t forget to bring your passport along if you want a special equator stamp in it !!!
