Although only 75 meters tall, this landmark designed after the Eiffel Tower in Paris, is a symbol of pride for the people of Guatemala.

Bit of an oddity, this steel tower straddles the main street into the city from the airport, but doesn't seem to do very much. It's sort of a Meccano memorial. Worth peering at as you drive by and under it, but probably not worth seeing...More

This place is like the Eiffel tower in Paris but littler . On this one we could not enter inside, is just a statue but, has a nice view.

this is a copy of Eiffel tower, but looks lower, not attracting at all, so do not waste time here, you can pass here by car and find it

We completed the whole Reforma walking tour until we reached the tower. It was nice, but there's not much to do after you have seen it.
