Willy Wasser & Little Horsie in Torre Latinoamericana and Palacio de Bellas Artes

Willy Wasser and Little Horsie visited Mexico City Downtown.

Torre Latinoamericana

Considered for many years the tallest building in Mexico and Latin America, the Latin-American Tower is a great pride for the inhabitants of Mexico City as it broke many records in engineering during its construction using Mexican technology, and has also resisted the strong earthquakes of 1957 and 1985. Today, in spite of the fact that it’s not the tallest building anymore having been surpassed by the Pemex Tower, the World Trade Center and most recently the Mayor Tower, the Latin-American Tower still has a special place among the inhabitants as it is the classic skyscraper of the city and one of the most important urban landmarks.

This skyscraper has 43 office floors and an antenna from which radio and television signals are transmitted. It also has a belvedere on its last three floors where one can get an excellent view of the city.

Palacio de Bellas Artes

Maximum forum of art and culture in Mexico, the Palace of Fine Arts surprises Mexicans and foreigners alike with its ostentatious architecture, in which two styles come together in a harmonious and elegant fashion: the Art Nouveau of its exterior with the Art Deco of its interior.
The interior walls were decorated with works by the most outstanding Mexican muralists of the time like Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, Juan O’Gorman and Rufino Tamayo, among others.

In this magnificent building a great number of artistic and cultural activities take place; from painting, sculpture and architecture exhibitions, to its famous opera presentations and classical music concerts, as well as classic ballet and folkloric ballet. The plaza located outside the main entrance with four famous ‘Pegaso’ sculptures can be appreciated contrasting with the modern beauty of the neighboring Latin-American Tower.
