We’ll drive you to the historical district, to admire the exceptional charisma of the Plaza de la Independencia and its surrounding Palaces: Presidential, Municipal and Archbishop’s. Then we'll discover the imposing church of la Compañia de Jesús and its fine baroque architecture and the character of the ancient monastery of San Francisco.

Next we'll continue northwards to the monument that marks the latitude 0º 00’ 00” better known in the world as the Equator, locally known as the Middle of the World. Here you can literally jump from the northern to southern hemisphere of the planet. This tour includes a visit to the Inti Ñan Museum, a clever and fun, didactical museum about the influence of the equator in daily live.
