This architectural monument commemorates the Mexican revolution. Standing proudly in the Plaza de la República, it is comprised of four arched walls and a dome as its centrepiece. The monument was constructed by Carlos Obregón Santacilia, who decided upon an Art Deco/Art Nouveau design.
Today the monument has become an iconic symbol of the revolution and functions as a mausoleum for the celebrated figures of the movement, such as Francisco 'Pancho' Villa and Venustiano Carranza. The basement of the monument houses the National Museum of the Revolution, which opened in 1986 and timelines the periods of the revolution.
Museum Opening Times:
