6. The WBCC Bi-metallic Quiz Game #518.........by Jack Hepler, USA
The "Plaza Mayor" is a very important square in the downtown that displays fountains, green spaces and a collection of monuments showing local heroes. The main monument in the Plaza Mayor is the "Angel de la Libertad" that was built in 2003 representing the freedom of all Mexicans. It was inaugurated during the Independence Day festivities on September 15th of that same year. The monument has a laser light at the tip of the sword, and is also capable of rotating 360° over its base, allowing the laser to illuminate the skies of the city.
