Quito Wheelchair Access Travel

Quito is the capital and the largest city of Ecuador, and at an elevation of 2,850 metres above sea level, the second-highest official capital city in the world, after La Paz, and the one which is closest to the equator. It is located in the Andes Mountains. With a population of 2,671,191 according to statistical projections, Quito is the most populous city in Ecuador. It is also the capital of the Pichincha province and the seat of the Metropolitan District of Quito. The historic center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. Quito and Kraków, Poland, were among the first World Cultural Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO, in 1978. The central square of Quito is located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) south of the equator; the city itself extends to within about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) of zero latitude. 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.
