UNAM library, December 1958

Mexico's National University, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), was established in 1551. It is the largest university in Latin America and generally considered the best.


Its main campus in the Coyoacan district of Mexico City was built in the 1950s. Many of the buildings are covered with mosaics by world-renowned artists and muralists. The mosaic on the external walls of the library is the largest mosaic in the world.
