in detail

The Monument to the Mexican Revolution (Monumento a la Revolución) is an unfinished architectural work, meant to be the Palace of the Chamber of Deputies and Senators. Only the dome remains from the original project.

It was an venue promoted by Porfirio Diaz. Work was comissioned to architect Émile Bénard but work was suspended after the outbreak of the Mexican Revolution for lack of resources. It was restarted by architect Carlos Obregon after the revolt, to become a monument to the Revolution. Construction work lasted from 1933-1938 and is inspired by the art déco style.

It has sculptures alluding to Independence, the Reform Laws, the Agrarian Law and the Workers Laws. It reopened on the centenary of the feat in 2010. Herein lie the funeral remains of Francisco I. Madero, Plutarco Elias Calles, Lázaro Cárdenas and Francisco Villa.
