Another cool thing that we saw on our trip to Mexico City was the Alter de la Patria. This monument is located at the entrance to the Bosque de Chapultepec, so make sure to see it if you are at the nearby castle. After seeing this, we were glad that we decided to let our kids go to the park to burn off some energy.The monument is absolutely beautiful and it holds the remains of six young men who lost their lives in the Mexican-American war. There is a beautiful story behind the six men that is worth learning about as well. We thought this dedication was perfect after learning the history behind it.
