Angel of Independence (Monumento a la Independencia) Tours

Angel of Independence (Monumento a la Independencia)
Built in 1910, this iconic monument commemorates the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the nation’s War of Independence. Its towering stone column stretches high into the Mexico City skyline and both drivers and pedestrians can see its golden angel statue as they move about the popular Paseo de la Reforma. 

Once a monument of commemoration, travelers will now find that the Angel of Independence has become a common meeting place for locals and the gathering spot for protests and celebrations—particularly after the Mexican national soccer team wins a match. The base of the monument also serves as a mausoleum and final resting place for a number of Mexican war heroes. 

Practical Info

The monument is located in the roundabout near Padeo de la Reforma in downtown Mexico City. Entrance is free and small groups of 12 visitors can climb the more than 200 stairs to the top. Travelers who are unfit will find the steep12-story climb a challenge and those who fear tight spaces may want to avoid the narrow stairwell altogether. 
Address: Paseo de la Reforma y Eje 2 PTE, Juárez, Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City, Mexico
