Gain extensive views of Mexico City during a trip up Torre Latino. Built in 1956 and reaching a height of 188 m (597 ft), the skyscraper was the largest building in the capital until 1984, and represents a landmark in engineering as the first major skyscraper to be successfully built on regularly active seismic land. Take the elevator up to the 44th floor to snap panoramic shots of the capital from the observation deck, and make sure to pay a visit to the onsite museum. There you'll learn about the techniques and technology used to help the skyscraper withstand the 1985 Mexico City earthquake without sustaining any damage.
