  • Unless really bother you, this is not worth the detour to see this metal tower (she does not visit and access is protected). It spoils the view that one can have on Fourvière but the lyonnais are used :-(

  • This makes for some great photos if Paris doesn't fit your itinerary! The tower is a TV tower now I believe and really only notable for it's semblance to the much more famous Eiffel tower in Paris. A ...  more »
  • 'S sometimes called it the Eiffel Tower of Lyon (in much smaller, 86 m high), although Gustave Eiffel is not involved in its design and its realization. The comparison ends there. It was inaugurated at the exhibition international and colonial Lyon in 1894. Initially, she served as Observatory (at 80 m from the floor, accessible by elevator) with a restaurant and a souvenir shop at the foot of the tower. Later, it was converted in communications (Radio FM and TV) tower. Cannot be visited. It can be seen in several points of the city (Croix-Rousse, Place Bellecour, on the edge of the Saône, etc.), just outside the Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière. Another difficult comparison.

  • Seeing this tower was my best experience; ever. The Eiffel tower is just a rip-off. Its the best thing ever build out of metal. The perfect symbiosis of metal and tower penetrates the sky like no other object created by mankind. The only bad thing is the Notre dame de fouviere blocking the view and distracting.
  • The mini Eiffel Tower!!!
  • 外表醜陋,格格不入。
  • Its REALLY an amazing place with an extraordinary view of the city
