Tour Paris-Plage

Sculpture in Le Touquet

Designed by French artist Alain Godon (b 1964), this 9.5m-high sculpture made from polystyrene on a metal frame, coated with beach sand, depicts an abstract version of Paris' Eiffel Tower in the style of a giant sandcastle. It was unveiled in 2017 to commemorate Le Touquet's 105-year anniversary and honour its Parisian connections.
