Beautiful large white monument with a great story attached to it. Like with so many of Mexico city's attractions I always say to go early in the day as you will get an unobstructed view

We cal it "the sparragus". The park, Chapultepec, is a beautiful place to visit. This monument is not worth to is it.

It is a monument to those young heroes who gave their lives to defend their country against foreign invaders The story behind is very interesting and worth to know. Very close to this monument you will find the very famous National Institute of Fine Arts

The statue has barricades on it now so you cannot walk on the lovely white stone. All that. All be done here is gaze and read your guide book regarding the story. While you do this nearby boards if ubiquitous vendors will harass you.

The monument per se is nice, but is more interesting to hear the story of the niños heroes "hero kids". The place is near mexico city downtown so is well located to see other places around

It is an enormous whitish marble monument, quite beautiful. Good for a picture but not much to see other than that. Though it is located within the Chapultepec Forrest so after visiting this monument, I recommend walking around the Bosque, and maybe visiting the Chapultepec Castle.

We came upon this monument on the way to see Chapultepec Castle, which is on the hill just behind. Thanks to our guide, we learned the story of the 6 young men who died defending the castle against the invading American army after the rest of the soldiers were drawn away by another skirmish. Impressive visually, but probably not worth... More

A monument made of marble dedicated to the memory of only 6 of 47 soldiers that died when the US troops invaded Mexico City. These 6 soldiers are some of the many pseudo heroes that Mexico has. The history behind the monument is fake, made by the government to motivate young people. Today everybody knows the history was a complete... More

It is really nice, don´t go there on weekends the line is too long. unless you go really early when they open. Make sure you visit the fag and the carriage rooms of the castle.
