Paris: After 500 years Gothic Tower opens to the public

The Eiffel Tower's new rival: Gothic tower in the heart of Paris opens to the public for the first time in 500 years
170-ft high Gothic Tour Saint Jacques is one of the best kept secrets in Paris
It has remained closed to the public for much of its 500 year history
But the tower has now been opened to the public for the entire summer

Oh shoot, only until Sept. 15th! We will be in Paris on the 22nd. Darn, that would have been interesting to see and a challenge to climb.

Yes, but only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and groups are limited to 17 people (and I think you have to reserve well in advance).

Neat! We walked by the tower several times and even into the little park surrounding it. It served as our guide "home" and after walking all day seeing it we knew we were getting close to our apartment.

Ohhh, I remember it all shrouded in white. Too bad we won't be there this summer.
