2. Francisco Primo de Verdad y Ramos Marker
This and many of the statues on the Paseo de la Reforma have two markers: one facing the street and one facing the sidewalk. As replacements due to theft and vandalism have been made, sometimes the text has small differences between the two sides. Here the street side uses "Francisco Primo de Verdad" and "precursor", while the older marker shown above facing the sidewalk uses "Lic. Verdad" and "protomartir."
