Mexico's abandoned 'Monumento de Mestizaje'


Monumento de Mestizaje was supposed to be a mega monument celebrating the Mestizo culture, built on a small island close to the shore, in the city of Chetumal, Mexico. Chetumal's former governor Joaquin Hendricks Diaz envisioned a massive iron construction, on the scale of Eiffel Tower and millions of pesos were invested. A 60 meter (200 feet) high arch was built but the construction was never finished. 

Today, the  monument remains unfinished and abandoned on its small island, often visited by tresspassers.
