The Angel of Independence is a well-known monument in Mexico City. We knew that we had to check it out on our most recent trip. This monument stands in a traffic circle in a busy downtown section of Mexico City and gets a ton of attention. We spent a good chunk of time looking at the details of the monument and telling our kids what we had learned about it prior to visiting. They thought it was pretty cool that they remains of some pretty important people are at the bottom of the monument because they thought it was an interesting place (as did we) to have something like that. You should definitely check it out if you find yourself in downtown MC!
