Quito is the capital city of Ecuador, and at an elevation of 9,350 feet, it is the highest official capital city in the world.

The historic center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. A monument and museum marking the general location of the equator is known locally as la mitad del mundo (the middle of the world), to avoid confusion, as the word ecuador is Spanish for equator.
