Mexico Olympics Monument

The Mexico Olympics Monument was built in 1968 to house the Olympic Flame that was traveling to Mexico City from Greece. After the flame left, the Bahamas kept the structure as a monument of the Olympics. While there is not much otherwise to do at the site, it is a popular place for tourist to take pictures, especially sports fans.


Once you see the monument, you'll know what it is. This large monument built of black tiles has a clear label of "Mexico" and the Olympic Rings across the front. On top, there is the place where the Olympic Flame would have rested.
