MONTERREY, Mexico-beauty in the mountains

Hi everybody!
Presenting beautiful Monterrey, one of the most modern cities in Latin America
Progress surrounded by Mountains
Enjoy!

Monterrey is the capital city of the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo León. Also known as the "City of the Mountains" and "Sultana del Norte" (Sultan of the North), the city is a modern industrial and business center. It is the third most populated metropolitan area in the country and the second largest in area after Mexico City. The whole metropolitan area has been ranked as having the highest GDP per capita and as the most secure conurbation in Latin America in 2005[1] and one of the two most secure in 2006.

The Monterrey metropolitan area has approximately 3,612,991 inhabitants.

Cheers!

Thanks for your comments, I think the bridge will look better once other vertical projects are finish in the same area.

I'll leave this one

Thanks for all your comments

Technically Monterrey is part of North America and yes in summer can be very hot, although the annual average is around 70F - 21C

http://www.weather.com/outlook/trave...68?from=search

Since the city is located in a beautiful mountain valley, during summer time, people like to drive out the city to some nature parks that exist just out the city

like Cumbres de Monterrey







cheers!

Oh wow, great night shots. Does anyone have any info on the construction projects going on in Monterrey? Last I remember, they had a number of new buildings being erected throughout the city. The city is growing fast, like most of Mexico.

Also, does anyone know how tall the mountains are?

The Cerro de la Silla (Chair's Mountain), the one with the two tops that reminds a horse chair is 5,972ft.

Regarding the buildings, as long as I know since I don't live in Monterrey, the newest one is a government building of 36 floors and 591ft. This building will host every government department office's of the state.
