Monument to the Revolution in Mexico City

After taking a few days off, I decided to get back on the horse and share some images that I took the first night I was in Mexico City last week. I got together with a friend for dinner and decided to head over to the Monument to the Revolution that stands not too far off of Paseo de la Reforma just about a mile away from the Angel of Independence.

This beautiful copula-styled structure was recently remodeled and reinaugurate. I had visited it about five years ago when it was simply the copula with nothing else in the plaza. At the base of each leg of the structure, an integral patriot crucial to the revolution is interned there. I couldn’t tell you who they are right off the top of my head, but I remember reading a plaque that talked about them. Since the renovation, there is now an observation deck that was installed in the dome with an elevator that takes up about a dozen people at a time. There is also now a museum in an underground level under the plaza, along with two fountains that operate on the weekends. I arrived shortly after closing time, so I wasn’t fortunate enough to go up to the observation deck.

I enjoyed the detail in the bricks from underneath along with the reflection of the memorial in the building across the way. I won’t go on and on about these photos, so here they are. Enjoy!!!
