"In front of the National..." Monuments Tip by Ronald_T

Monuments, Mexico City: 14 reviews and 16 photos


Favorite thing: In front of the National Museum (formally the Palace of Communications), you find the equestrian monument to King Charles IV of Spain. This work of Tolsá, was cast in 1803. The statue was originally intended to stand on the centre of the Plaza Mayor. Ever since it was unveiled, it has been popularly known as “El Caballito” (Little Horse).
