    Transamerica Corporation's icon is perhaps the most recognized building in the San Francisco skyline. The tallest and perhaps best looking building in the city, standing 853 feet with 48 floors.

    Transamerica Pyramid is located in financial district very close to the Chinatown. This photo was taken on the crossing from Chinatown to North Beach.

    Walk down Columbus Avenue, through North Beach (be sure to stop for a capuccino or glass of vino at one of the cafes along the way). You will catch this glimpse of the Transamerica Tower.

    Transamerica Pyramid

    The biggest scyscraper of San Francisco. It's an office and bank-building with a special construction that makes it safe for earthquakes. Really fascinating if you're an architechture fan.
