" Plaza Mexico "

- at the end of Magallanes drive and right along Pasig river, situated in an incongruous spot
stands the plaque of Plaza Mexico.


What used to be an original port of the galleons many years ago.
This monument commemorates the Phil.-Mexican friendship and was installed some 45 years ago by
the late Pres. Macapagal and the former Pres. Adolfo Mateos of Mexico.


Imagine what this place would've been like years ago...^0^

  1. Truth be told, I never knew Mexico and the Philippines had a special connection! I love what I learn blogging!

  2. This is great! And that anchor is amazing :-D

  3. Goodness, I've passed by this road so many times and never even noticed it!

  4. Hindi ko pa nakita yan kahit nung nasa Manila pa ako or dahil wala pa akong interest nun sa photography :)

    Kailangan ng konting linis at pintura.

  5. You would have thought for the sake of Mexico-Philippine diplomacy they would make it look a bit more cared for.

  6. Mexico has the same monument erected and inaugurated at the same time it was open to the public in Manila. The Mexican Counterpart was in a very good condition.


thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
