Owner description: Marco do Equador at Ilheu das Rolas is a wonderful lookout situated where the Equator line crosses the island. From there you can get wonderful views of the main island of Sao Tome.

The hike to the ecuador landmark take around 15-20, but its really worth it. Reaching the spot you wonder, i'm at the line that divides the world.

Local authorities should place some decent signage directing to the monument.

Reminder: Save time so that after seeing the mark and walk back, you can dive in the crystal clear water of Ilheu das Rolas.

If you have made it this far, you really have to manage the 10-15 minute hike up the hill to the equator mark. Is it really the equator? Probably not, but it's good enough for a selfie and great views over to the main island.

É um local que impressiona pela beleza, pena estar muito mal cuidado, diria mesmo quase desprezado. No entanto que se está no local o meio envolvente sobrepoem-se aos pontos negativos
It is a place that impresses by the beauty, pity to be very badly taken care of, would even say almost despised. However if you are on the premises the surroundings overwhelm the negatives
