The monument is easy to get to and is in a quiet secluded area off the freeway so you can get a good look at it and take good photos just passing it on the road. There was no heavy traffic when we went. Actually,...More

The wife and I drove over from El Paso as we had seen the monument from an Ariel Tramway ride. It was well worth the ride. Plenty of public parking and the streets had pedestrian cross lights. The surrounding park appeared to be well maintained....More

This Monument is more than an exciting piece of staggeringly beautiful gargantuan outdoor art and symbol of Mexican tenacity; it means I’m either just entering magnificent Mexico or leaving this marvelous country. Located amongst several other statues, parks, soccer/sports venues, academic/vocational schools—all sliced/served by decent...More

Very strange to see this gigantic red X in the middle of the city. It almost made me feel wary, knowing about the crime and drogistas not far away. But, certainly breaks up the low skyline of this city.

Either the Tequila festival, beer festival or better yet, the annual fair, it a great place to have a good time while enjoying what different cultures can offer (Fair time) and have a little taste of México and it's variety of cultures, cuisine and beverages.

You will end up passing this X even if you aren’t trying to. I was with some of my friends that live in Juarez and they said that apparently different border towns have the other letters that eventually spell out “Mexico.”

Locals mocked and some even hated this sculpture/monument when it was in construction. However, it has become the most distinguishable land mark in the city. It's like Juarez's Eiffel Tower. This place is regularly used to host events organized or sponsored by the local government...More
