ABOUT: Torre Latinoamericana is a skyscraper with a distinctive design, located in Downtown Mexico City. At almost an impressive 600-feet tall and, the tower has 44 stories.
TL is globally famous as an architectural achievement since it was the world’s first major skyscraper successfully built on highly-active seismic land. It withstood a 7.9 earthquake in 1957 and a 8.1 magnitude earthquake in 1884 without any damage.
The Torre Latinoamericana was Mexico City’s tallest building between 1956-1984.
In 2006, the building celebrated its 50th anniversary. Mirador, the observation deck between the 37th – 44th also opened its doors to visitors on this occasion. Mirador offers unparalleled, panoramic views of Mexico City, and although it sounds touristy, it’s an absolute must-visit for any first-time visitor.
