Fodor's Expert Review Monumento a la Revolución

Zona Rosa Memorial/Monument/Tomb

This iconic domed structure celebrates the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Take an elevator to the observation deck up top, which offers 360-degree views of the city, or admire the Oliverio Martinez sculptures that adorn the four corners of the monument from below. There's also a small café and museum devoted to the history of the Revolution (separate admission). Lit up nightly at 10 pm, the monument is a moving sight. At the base of the pillars lie the remains of important figures from 20th-century Mexican history, including those of Pancho Villa.
