The meeting place for many famous Mexicans, politicians, artists, philanthropist is the Rotonda de los Hombres Ilustres - a cemetery. I was quite amazed by the number of members of Mexican elite. The tombstones are put in two large circles. In the middle there is an eternal flame symbolizing the eternity of the work of those who are buried there.

At the entrance of the cemetery the guard will give you a map of the cemetery, it's gonna be pretty useful. Don't forget your camera and plan to spend some time there, the place is very park-like.

Address:
Constituyentes and Av. Civil Dolores, Dolores Cemetery, Chapultepec Park

Price:
The cemetery is free.
