Greece even has its own Eiffel Tower thanks to a wealthy Greek American (VIDEO) 1

Yes, Greece even has its own Eiffel Tower courtesy of the donation for a wealthy Greek American named Charalambos Fournarakis also known as Harry Fournier.

Fournier,  a distinguished doctor and one of the most important benefactors of his hometown of Filiatra, Messinia in the Peloponnese, in 1960 funded the construction of a replica of the famous Parisian tower.

The Greek Eiffel Tower is essentially a mini Eiffel Tower, smaller by about 300 meters, at 26 meters, in contrast to the original one that reaches 325 metres.

It should be noted that the tower has not been the same since 1960, as it was reconstructed in 2007.
