Not A Double Vision, There are 2 Eiffel Towers in Paris

If you are in Paris now and see two Eiffel Towers, it doesn’t mean that you are experiencing double vision.

French artist Philippe Maindron is exhibiting a second Eiffel Tower named “Eiffela Tower” near the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

Assembled in Vendée, about 400 km southeast of Paris, the replica is 33 meters high and weighs 32 tons.

Dominique Dimitroff, a retired Parisian, describes the installation “very, very nice”, with “two Eiffel towers for the price of one”.

Maindron will exhibit Eiffela Tower until April 10.

Meanwhile, Eiffel Tower is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

Locally nicknamed “La dame de fer” (French for “Iron Lady”), it was constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the centerpiece of the 1889 World’s Fair. (AA)
