Torre Latinoamericana

Top choice notable building in Mexico City

Image by Laura Bronner Lonely Planet

The Torre Latinoamericana was Latin America’s tallest building when constructed in 1956, and thanks to the deep-seated pylons that anchor the building, it has withstood several major earthquakes including those of 1985 and 2017. Views from the 44th-floor observation deck and the 41st-floor lounge bar are spectacular, smog permitting. Admission includes access to an on-site museum that chronicles Mexico City's history. Admission is free if you're just visiting the bar.
