The most recognizable icon of Mexico City is the goldenAngel of Independenceon the wide, elegant avenuePaseo de la Reforma, modeled by the order of the EmperorMaximilian of Mexicoafter theChamps-Élyséesin Paris. This avenue was designed over the Americas' oldest known major roadway in the 19th century to connect theNational Palace(seat of government) with theCastle of Chapultepec, the imperial residence. ChapultepecPark houses theChapultepec Castle, now a museum on a hill that overlooks the park and its numerous museums, monuments and the national zoo and theNational Museum of Anthropology(which houses theAztec Calendar Stone).

After the Mexican Revolution, an avant-garde artistic movement originated in Mexico City: muralism. Many of the works of muralists José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera are displayed in numerous buildings in the city, most notably at the National Palace and the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Frida Kahlo, wife of Rivera, with a strong nationalist expression, was also one of the most renowned of Mexican painters.
