    There's a soccer field on west of this monument... Where one of the teams gols at the north hemisphere and the other team goals at the south hemisphere.... Nice.
    The center of this field is exaclty in the equator's line.

    And another curosity... They say that the water going down to a pipe, in north goes clockwise and in south hemisphere goes anti clockwise. So they put, at the two sides os this monument, a pipe going down... you can throw water to see the results... apparently, they're right, but I on't know why.

    Enjoy.
