Inaugurated in 1811 on the anniversary of the May Revolution and renovated in 1856, it represents the oldest monument in the city. Admire the imposing 18 m (61 ft) obelisk, on top of which stands a statue representing Liberty by French sculptor Joseph Dubordieu. The ashes of Azucena Villaflor, founder of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo--which searched for "disappeared" relatives--are buried at the monument's base.
