The tip of the Western Hemisphere

The tallest freestanding structure of the Western Hemisphere is the Canadian National Tower, built back in 1976.

From its 447 m.s.l., enjoy the majestic view on Toronto downtown and lake Ontario.

      Thank you Jim! It was exciting spying the city from such an high terrace. I was lucky it was quite empty at 8pm. Up there at almost 500 meters I had the luxury to spot the latest sunset in Toronto that day.
