in detail

The Torre Latino is the most popular lookout in Mexico City, a favorite destination for tourists downtown. With 44 floors, the skycraper stands 188 m tall, and was the tallest building in the city since its inauguration in 1956 until 1972.

Architect Augusto H. Álvarez started construction of the building in 1949. The building earned an award by  the American Institute of Steel Construction for being the tallest building ever exposed to an enormous seismic force: in 1985 the tower withstood an earthquake of 8.1 intensity on the Richter scale.

Currently it houses offices, the Museo del Bicentenario, the Miralto restaurant, permanent and temporary exhibitions, a café and the most famous viewpoint of the city. Even though this place has no activities for children, it is worth to take for the impressive view of the city. Any kid, even one that are not really kids, will feel amazed by the height of this building.
