Quitsato

Landmark in Cayambe

Here's a landmark that claims to be one of a kind – a massive 52m-diameter sundial set exactly on the equator. Surrounded by an impressive stone mosaic marking out different equinoxes and such, it is pretty damned impressive. In the Tsa’fiki indigenous language, Quitsato means – you guessed it – middle of the world. It's a wonderful photo op.
