Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City

4.7
One of Mexico City's major thoroughfares, Paseo de la Reforma runs through the city's main financial and business districts, taking visitors from the downtown to the famed Chapultepec Park. Laid out in the 1860s and modeled after some of Europe's grandest boulevards, the avenue runs diagonally across the city and hosts some of Mexico's tallest buildings. Arguably the street's best-known feature is the so-called Angel of Independence, a tall column topped by a golden statue of the Winged Goddess of Victory. A convenient starting point for many tours, this monument depicts various heroes from Mexican history and houses tombs of several notable historical figures.

  • The heart of all the action. Sunday is wonderful as they close the Reforma for walking and cycling. Best part is you can get free bikes to ride!  more »
