Mexico, Monumento Revolucion

The Arch of the Revolution (Monumento a la Revolución), is located on Avenida Juarez in Mexico City and was built between 1932 and 1938 to remember the revolutionary period of 1917 to 1929. It was designed by the architect Carlos Obregón Santacilia and the sculptor Oliverio Martinez. The monument was designed to become a mausoleum.

In 1960 the remains of Fransisco I. Madero were transferred;
in 1969 those of Plutarco Elias Calles;
in 1970 those of Lázaro Cárdenas and
in 1976 those of Francisco Villa.
