Regarding The Juárez Hemicycle. The Juárez Hemicycle is a cenotaph in Mexico City, located in the Alameda Central of the Historic Center, on Avenida Juárez, one of the most important arteries of the Mexican capital. It honors former Mexican President Benito Juárez, whose remains rest in the nearby San Fernando Cemetery. It was built in 1910 under President Porfirio as part of the celebrations of the centennial of Mexican Independence. It was designed by architect Guillermo de Heredia, with sculptures by Lazzaroni.

The monument is one of the largest in Mexico to Juárez, comparable to the statue at the Cerro de las Campanas in Querétaro. It is a fitting tribute to the lawyer from Oaxaca whose tenacity forged Mexico into a republic.
