Buildings, Landmarks

The vertical coffin

La Tour Montparnasse is considered the the ugliest buildings in the city (and one of the ugliest in the world, according to a poll by Virtualtourist).

Parisians often joke about it, saying the tower offers the best view of the city because it’s the only place where you don’t see it.

As a result the construction of high rise buildings is now banned within the city limits.
