Marco Zero, Macapa

(700+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Built next to the Milton Corrêa Stadium, Marco Zero marks the exact passage of the equator through Macapá. The 9 m (30 ft) monument consists of a rectangular obelisk with a circle through it near the top. At the equinox, the sun lines up perfectly in the circle and projects a ray of light along the imaginary line of the equator. Make Marco Zero part of your personalized Macapa itinerary using our Macapa tour planner.

  • Marco Zero is a quick stop, but makes for some fun pictures. It's free to visit, even with a guide who will give you some information about the significance of the monument and area.  more »
