Mexican Revolution

Below are many of the Mexico City sites directly relevant to the Mexican Revolution Period between 1910 and 1920.

While we can't summarize such an extraordinary series of events in any detail, we can try to provide a way to visit some of these places while familiarizing visitors with the basic timeline of events.

There's no question that Mexico City was rocked by the events between 1911 and 1921. Many of the issues and problems could not be solved by the end of the Revolution. It took decades. Some are only being worked out today, even 100 years since the conflict's end.

But visitors to Mexico City don't need to be mystified by the references in place names and significant sites. There are many, and the most important are marked on the map and listed below.
