The Equatorial line marking latitude 0° is a unique place where you can place one foot in one hemisphere and another foot in other at the same time. This is where in 1736, Charles’s Marie de La Condamine’s expedition measured the Earth. To commemorate this, a 30-meter high stone trapezoidal monument topped by a brass globe that is 4.5 m in diameter was built.
