This art-déco monument dedicated to the Mexican Revolution, is in the Plaza de la República, where the Museo Nacional de la Revolución is also located. The building was actually commissioned by dictator Porfirio Díaz, who intended to make it his new legislative chamber. However, the 1910 Revolution meant that the grandiose project was never to be fulfilled. The remains of presidents Madero and Carranza, have been laid to rest under the monument s pillars.
