There was a little bit complicated relationship between Amadeo Pietro Giannini and Transamerica, but Transamerica is more than proud to associate themselves with him. The building is definitely noticeable from just about any place in San Francisco. I thought I was told by my tour...More

This is an interesting building that tends to dominate the San Francisco skyline and you can see it from almost anywhere you are in the city. We walked to the base of the building and found a really cool, but small, city park. There's a...More

It is one of the landmarks of S.F. and an eye catcher. The architecture is amazing. The Transamerica Pyramid is one of the tallest building in S.F. and very impressive and located in the financial district. You can see and recognize it from far away....More

The building looks great from a distance but up close, it's actually pretty ugly. Sadly it's an office building so you can't enter and visit, but it's only worth viewing from a distance anyway.

It is still a breathtaking building, contrasting with other buildings of the SF skyline. I use it as my guide to keep from getting lost.

iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
