I was lucky to visit the monument during sunset because I had a great view of Paseo Montejo and the monument during that moment of the day.

We had dinner across the street from the monument and lots of people would go and take pictures. It is in the center of a really busy drive so I would freak out when I would see people trying to cross to get over there. It is in the middle of the circle. It is worth going by and checking it out!

A native looking monument celebrating Mexico and its history located at the end of Paseo de Montejo. Very photogenic monument loocated near a hotel district. Best visited on Sunday when the boulevard is closed to traffic and locals ride bikes and stroll along the avenue

I recently spent a Sunday on Paseo Montejo. The avenue is closed to traffic on Sundays to traffic and all of Merida comes out on bicycles and walking up and down the avenue that leads to this interesting monument. The story of Mexico is splayed all around the sculpture.

This monument has it all. The fountain is lovely, and the lighting beautifully sets off the unique neo-Mayan design. The monument is an encapsulation of everything to love about Mexico - the history of the country is represented in more than 200 historic figures carved around the sides of the monument, the ceiba tree, representing the Mayan cosmos is a centerpiece, all the states of Mexico are represented on plaques, and the iconic serpent and eagle shine in the forefront. To top it off, the position at the end of the Paseo de Montejo offers views of one of the most elegant boulevards in Mexico.
