Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City

#7 of 650 in Things to do in Mexico City
Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.

  • My favorite place in the city! Sunday mornings you can bike on the street along with thousands of locals who come out to walk/bike/skateboard/rollerblade!  more »
  • We never thought of Mexico City this beautiful. With all the buildings they manage to make the city green with all the parks in the City. Better than our own Los Angeles.  more »
