Nice statue and impressive up close. I wouldn't have travelled to see it but was fun to check it out while waiting for our Uber.

Very nice structure to photograph, surrounded by bars and hotels, you can sit at a bar and admire it for a while, it's not very big.

A beautiful group of horses on stampede. It is on top of a hill across from the cocktail center at the hotel Riu, near the Dickinson Guest House. A nice afternoon on the beverage balcony for working girls..

Nice piece of public art but there is no easy way to enjoy it since it is in the middle of a busy avenue...

This sculpture, which was first placed in another obscure place in the Metropole, now located at the Glorieta or RoundABout trafic circle on Av. Lopez Mateos, crossing various major Avenidas, such as Av. Niños Heroes to the East and Av. Guadalupe to the West. The exiting sculpture, designed and elaborated by Jorge de la Peña, is worth seeing in its... More

The plaza around was really nice but the monument itself would take no more than 5 mins to check up.

THe sculpture is placed on a roundabout so you will see it while driving around. I suggest stopping for a few pictures at least to see the sculpture up close to see how it was modelled

I was walking by this sculpture, and there's nothing to see, there are some tramps living on the streets begging for money, it's just a waste of time.

It is a great bronze statue of stampeding horses that is front of the new Hotel Riu Plaza in Chapalita. We stayed close by in a B&B, but it was fun for the kids to see how big these animal were. From the eyes of a young human, a great find.
