Situated on the bank of gorgeous San Martin square (the city's downtown), this building marked a feat of architecture and engineering. Guided visits are also available to admire this skyscraper from the interior.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
