Completely destroyed by a massive earthquake in the early 20th century, the city was rebuilt and its renovation in terms of architecture and a financial centre continued up until the 1980s, as a result of which today it is the undisputed leader in economics and modern high rises. It is home to several leading national and international banks including Wells Fargo, Federal Reserve Bank, Bank of America, and several others.
