If you have a smattering of knowledge of Mexican history, you will see lots of your knowledge reflected in this massive sculptural representation of Mexican History. The more you know, the more you will see. Great place for site specific pictures.

The only downside is that it is in the middle of a very busy traffic circle and requires you to be somewhat adept at playing frogger to get up close which then makes photography a bit of a challenge if you are looking for pictures...More
