The Middle of the World monument is located in which country?
The Ciudad Mitad del Mundo was constructed between 1979 and 1982 by Pichincha's Province Council to replace an older, smaller monument built by Government of Ecuador under the direction of the geographer Luis Tufiño in 1936. Contrary to popular belief, it is actually 787 feet (240 meters) north of the actual equator.
