AAA Editor Notes
Statue of Columbus stands within the glorieta (traffic circle) on Paseo de la Reforma at Av. Morelos (M: Revolución, line 2). The likeness of explorer Christopher Columbus (Cristóbal Colón in Spanish) was created by 19th-century French sculptor Charles Cordier. This is one of several statues commissioned by Porfirio Díaz to grace major intersections along this stretch of the city's widest boulevard.
