Glorieta Independencia – Independence Roundabout

Not all know it as the Glorieta Independencia. This roundabout is often used for protests or demonstrations. The Mexico Monument, or “La M,” (those two tall, sharp shapes form the letter “M” for Mexico) is the work of sculptor Ángela Gurría.

Commonly referred to by locals as Las Tijeras (“The Scissors”), this tall, stylized monument is hard to miss.

Located at Paseo de los Heroes in Tijuana.

The monument was constructed in 1981 and commemorates the struggle for the Independence of Mexico.

Emblematic roundabout, ideal for a souvenir photo of the city of Tijuana. Its peculiar shape makes you want to take the traditional souvenir photo with a CECUT background.

Tijuanenses (residents of Tijuana) will often use the monuments as reference points to help with directions to things nearby.

If you want to get out and explore the area on foot, there’s a lot around the monument to explore. Tijuana’s Cultural Center, the Plaza Fiesta, the Plaza Río mall (with a location of the food hall Food Garden), and Mercado Hidalgo are all nearby.
