This is a nice homage to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. A local told me that the former mayor of the city wanted to design this street to resemble the Champs Elysees in Paris. But, I pass this tower almost every day on my commute. There is not much to see. You can see it from the inside of a... More

The 72-metre Torre del Reformador called the Tower of the Reformer in honor of the reformist President of Guatemala Justo Rufino Barrios. It was built in 1935, the 100th anniversary of his birth. The similarity with the Eiffel tower is not accidental - the architect Arturo Bickford didn't invent, but used the same basic design decisions. The tower was not... More

Not too many tourist attractions to see in Guatemala City. That I found, so drive by and take a look.

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 otherwise.

I might be objective as I am from Guatemala but I must say this is really a landmark of my country that although not touristic attraction all local can say where it is and who built it therefore it's name

The Torre del Reformador is a wonderful place to drive by and see. Some people say they see a resemblance of the Eiffel tower but smaller. It's definitely not something you need to get out and see. Everything you need to see you can do by driving by.

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.

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 it's a little better. I lived in the Hotel Cortijo Reforma, which is on the... More
