One of the symbols of the city, created in the image and likeness of the French tower.

Torre del Reformador

Guatemala's Eifel Tower

It really does look like the Eifel Tower in Paris does it? Albeit a little smaller, it is still just as striking as the French equivalent; unsurprising really as they were built using the same materials and techniques. It is a true symbol of the Guatemalan capital. This metal tower is just over seventy metres high and it can be found in Zone 9 of the city. It was initially called the Torre Conmemorativa del 19 de julio to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Justo Rufino Barrios. This president governed the country from 1873 to 1885 and issued the most important reforms in Guatemala, which are still remembered today. Although the Torre del Reformador was built in the US, the final assembly was left to the mayor of the city at the time, Arturo Bickford. Not to be missed!
