The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), located in downtown Mexico, is the largest university in Latin America, and one of the leading university of the Spanish-speaking world. Up until about seventy years ago, the university occupied a series of ancient palaces and buildings belonging to its preceding institution, the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico, which closed in 1867. In 1943, the University decided that instead of having the campus spread across various buildings in the city center, a new and consolidated university campus was needed. The master plan was drawn up by architects Mario Pani and Enrique del Moral, and a team of more than 60 designers built one of the most beautiful university campuses around the world.
