Cabeza de Juárez

Very near Metro Guelatao (Línea A), and about a hundred meters South of Av. Ignacio Zaragoza, the limit between Estado de México (North) and Distrito Federal (South), and thus between Cd. Nezahualcóyotl (North) and Iztapalapa (South), is this colossal «Cabeza de Juárez» (Juárez’s head). Benito Juárez was president of Mexico in the 1860s-1870s; this monument is… as ugly as it can get. There is a little museum underneath, although we didn’t venture into it.
