If you have never been to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and never plan to go, this would be an ok 1/4 scale model that would be worth your time only if you are on either 7a Ave. or 2a. Calle. Lit up at night...More

just a tower in the street, like a decoration. The area is not nice at all. I would not go looking for it.

Good landmark for Guatemala City! It is not super tall but really worth the drive! It is on the road, so all you need is to pull over and take some pictures....
