Directly across the street from the Palacio de Bellas Artes is the Torre Latinoamericana skyscraper. Forty-four storeys high, it dominates the impressive Mexican megalopolis, the third largest urban area in the world, with 20 million inhabitants. When it was completed in 1956, the Latin American Tower was the tallest building in Mexico, and remained so until 1984, when the Torre WTC, taller by 24 metres, was finished.
The tower was built to house the headquarters of Latinoamericana Seguros, an insurance company that gave its name to the building during the economic boom of the post-war period, between the late 1940s and mid-1960s. On the 43rd floor, where its platform is easily accessible, you can enjoy one of Mexico City's most beautiful observation decks.
