The church of Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico

Two spires frame a central clock tower of a colonial-era church. Several people are walking up the stairs into the church.This church is a famous landmark of Mexico's Independence movement. On September 16, 1810, the parish priest Miguel Hidalgo called his Indian parishioners to revolt by ringing the bell in this church's bell tower. Hidalgo was unsuccessful, but by 1824 the movement he started would eventually result in an independent Mexico.
