We will begin our trek at Diego Rivera's famous Mural Museum. "Dream on a Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda Park" was originally painted on the walls of the Del Prado Hotel located across the street, but later moved to its new site after the 1985 earthquake damaged the building. Following that, we will walk by the National Lottery Building, an example of Mexican art deco architecture, and Sebastian's rendition of El Caballito modern horse sculpture, to the recently refurbished Monument to the Revolution - a mausoleum honoring the heroes of the Revolutionary Movement.
The Monument to the Revolution was originally earmarked to be the Legislative Palace but left unfinished after the Revolution broke out. It was eventually converted into the Museum of the Revolution and was chosen as one of the sites to be spruced up by the city government for the bicentennial festivities in 2010. There is a newly installed elevator allowing visitors to observe the structural architecture from the inside, as well as get an impressive bird's eye view of the plaza from the observatory.
