One block from Reforma Avenue, at the Republic Plaza we’ll find the Revolution Monument surrounded by fountains and built by Carlos Obregón Santacilla. Dedicated to the commemoration of the Mexican Revolution, this spot offers a lot of things to do. It has a museum in its foundations, two cafés, 2 lookouts and a gift shop.
This spot was once home to the Federal Legislative Palace and it’s worth paying the ticket for a complete visit and entering the entire place. At the basement I can actually see (and touch) the original foundations of the monument and through some pictures even experience the complete building process. Walking among is corridors is a real trip to the past.
Now, let’s get some air on the 360-degree-view balcony, where the views are exciting.
This is a very well known place, but more than just being a touristic spot, this place honors the memory of our greatest Mexican heroes.
I prefer to visit it during weekdays, when it’s less crowded. I combine it with a cup of tea in the restaurant above.
You can plan ahead by visiting its website (that’s what I do) — a skip-the-line ticket is available.
