Nice monument on Reforma business street with modern buildings around. As it is one of the city symbol i would recommend to stop by. You can walk from here to historical centre to see most from Reforma street and it takes 30-40min.

We walked to it from our hotel on Zona Rosa, its very pretty, make sure you find out where the crosswalk is since there's lots of traffic and you don't want to be a casualty.
