La Mitad del Mundo is an emblematic monument located on the outskirts of the city of Quito, Ecuador. The monument itself consists of a large stone structure representing the equator and is topped by a giant globe. Visitors can stand on the line marked on the ground, which represents the division between the two hemispheres, and take pictures on one side of the world and the other. In addition to the monument in the surrounding area you'll find a museum called the "Intiñan Solar Museum," which offers interactive and educational exhibits on natural phenomena that occur in the equatorial region, as well as experiments related to gravity and location on the equator. It's an interesting place to learn about Ecuador's geography and culture, and to experience the curiosities that occur at the equator, such as the ability to balance eggs on a nail or the deflection of water in different hemispheres.
