The Torre Latinoamericana is considered as one of Mexico’s tallest and famous buildings. And all over the world, it is considered the 45th tallest structure. The site has its own observation deck which locals and tourists love to visit. You can say that this is Mexico’s version of the Empire State Building.
The tower holds the prestige of being included in the World Federation of Great Towers and has survived numerous earthquakes including the hardest to hit the country in 1957.
This building still has operators manning the elevators, which is part of its charm. Standing in the country’s historical zone, the torre is part of an ongoing restoration project that will help preserve it.
The top three floors is where the observatory is, with the 42nd and 43rd floors serving as decks, while the 44th floor is a windy open terrace. Going down floor 37th is where the gift shops and restaurants are, which makes it an ideal place for tourists who would love to dine amidst the city as its backdrop, and then shop for souvenirs later.
The 38th floor has the museum, which catalog’s the construction of the building, as well as other historical structures in the city.
The tower is open from Mondays to Sundays beginning at 9 am and closing at 10 pm. Entrance fees cost affodably and you can actually visit the observation deck as many times as you like, as long as you have already paid the fee.
