Downtown of Bogotá
With 42 floors, by the date of its construction the Avianca building was the tallest building of all South America. I was built between 1967 and 1970. It was partially burned in 1973 but it was reconstructed later. Located in the downtown of Bogotá, still today it’s one of the largest buildings of the city. In reality Bogotá has few skyscrapers, instead the city had expanded widely along an extensive plateau. At the left of the picture there is the San Francisco Church from 1611 and at the right there are the headquarters of the central banking of Colombia (Banco de la Republica).
