FARO DE ORCHILLA and MONUMENT AT MERIDIAN 0
This monument, located in the suburbs of the Faro de Orchilla, reminds us that the island was the zero meridians until it was relocated to the Greenwich Observatory in England. The monument is of much simplicity and a high symbolic value, due to that it reminds us that the stripe of the zero-meridian passed during two hundred years by this point.
