It was built in 1978, and has a total height of 196 meters. The main headquarters of Colpatria Bank are located in the building, and also a great number of other banks and financial corporations have offices on it. The building lies at the intersection of 26th street and 7th avenue, in the heart of the city's downtown.

Colpatria Tower was to be surpassed as the tallest building in Colombia by a new 206m tall apartment tower that was being built in the city of Cartagena, but thas project came to an end after its structure was bent during a series of fast winds on 2007 and the city ordered its dismantling.

This is a 50-story skyscraper, the tallest in Colombia. Visit this at night, so you'll see the Xenon lights illuminating the whole building. Also go to the panoramic observation deck (49th floor).
