Welcome to La Mitad del Mundo


Overshadowing the Mitad del Mundo monument is the new headquarters for the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), called 'Nestor Kirchner' in honor of the late Argentine president and fronted by a statue of him. A startling modernist building, with gravity-defying cubist structures resembling a misshapen spaceship, it was designed by Diego Guayasamín and opened for business in December, 2014.
