Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

Did you know that the Eiffel Tower has stone feet?

Showcase of French technical know-how, the Eiffel Tower, from its height of 324 meters, is the flagship monument of the French capital. To support the 7,300 tons of steel, the piers of the tower rest on four masonry blocks supporting each of the crossbowmen. This ingenious anchoring system is crowned by freestone walls. During a rehabilitation carried out by the technical design office Séchaud & Bossuyt, the Massangis French by Polycor was chosen to adorn the feet of the tower.

Trocadéro, Pont d'Iéna, Russian Orthodox spiritual and cultural center or Louis Vuitton Foundation, today as in the past, the Massangis stone quarried in Burgundy is used for architecture to embellish the great Parisian monuments.
