Major street, a bit of a pain to cross sometimes. Good place to see locals going about their business. Some impressive office buildings. Very similar to major European boulevards.

It's not a bad place to people watch. The pillar itself is nothing to get excited about. Go during the day because the night lighting is a little neon tacky. If you're in the area it's certainly a nice place to set back and enjoy a scenic break.

Great to see, however Reforma Calle is very busy, and tricky to maneuver parking for pictures. The sculptures (the boy and the lion) at the base of the sculpture are equally as beautiful.

This is a lovely focal point in the city, we sat here and watched all the cyclists go round and the dancers on the stage at the day of the dead celebrations, we also learnt about its history and how it has been built up after it started sinking

If you want to go upstairs you have to get prior permission. They do let you walk around on the 1st floor. Be careful crossing the street because there is no crosswalk.

This is a very long boulevard VERY LONG. It seems to be quite a traffic jam most days, BUT on Sunday it becomes a beautiful urban oasis of loveliness because it is closed to motorized traffic!!! WE were fortunate that our hotel had free loaner bikes, so we spent a really fabulous day riding our bikes from Polanco to Centro... More
