The first city in the world to be declared a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1978 offers to its visitors magnificent squares, churches and plazas dating from the XVI century to nowadays. We’ll drive you to the historical district, to admire the exceptional charisma of the Main Square or Plaza Grande and its’ surrounding Palaces: Presidential, Municipal and Archbishop’s. The Cathedral and its richness, the imposing church of la Compañia de Jesús and its finest baroque architecture and the character of the ancient monastery of San Francisco will be the highlights of this visit. 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. Book now (photo above belongs to Hector López)
