About this photo

The Intiñan Museum, located near the Ciudad Mitad del Mundo (the equatorial line) in Quito, Ecuador, proves a popular attraction for those who, apart from witnessing elements of Ecuador’s culture, want to see supposedly unique, equatorial phenomena such as balancing an egg on a nail. The Intiñan Museum is actually closer to the real equatorial line than Ciudad Mitad del Mundo and shows its own marker. Visit Quito on Insight Guides' Ecuador: History and Culture trip.
