This walkway reflects the historical idea of bonding the Plaza 25 de Mayo square to the Monumento Nacional a la Bandera through the most significant buildings of the city, such as the Palacio Municipal municipal building and the Iglesia Catedral cathedral. At the same time, this walkway bounding offers the perfect view of the monument and the river. In the bigger picture, there stands out a walkway over a moving mirror of water which holds the group of sculptures made by Lola Mora for one the first projects of the Monumento a la Bandera.
