It was difficult to find as the map locator is not accurate. We drove past several times as it was not well signed. It is free to visit. Someone has put graffiti on the monument which is disappointing. It was worth the visit even though...More

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.

Taking a photo when one foot is in the southern hemisphere while the other foot is in the northern hemisphere can be exciting. All the tours head here just for that purpose.

There's not really much to see here. It's just an obelisk and marked line on the ground(which you can see in the photo). It's in the middle of nowhere, close to the sambadrome, with just some roads and large dirt car parks around it. That...More
