The Latin America Tower was built between 1948 and 1956 and with 44 floors it was for many years the highest building of the city. Most of the building is rented out as office space, but the upper levels are accessible to visitors. The 37th floor has a restaurant and gift shop. On the 38th floor there is a museum with historical photos of the city, information about the construction of the tower, and archaeological pieces that were found on the site when the foundations of the building were being dug. The 42nd and 43rd floors are observation decks. The Tower is open Monday to Sunday from 9 am to 10 pm. The project was designed and executed by Dr Leonardo Zeevaert Wiechers and his brother Adolfo Mexican civil engineers born in Veracruz with architect Augusto H. Alvarez.
