San Francisco Coit Tower
Want to learn more about San Francisco’s tourist attractions? If you are thinking about things to do and see in San Francisco, then here is a guide about one great attraction – The Coit Tower in San Francisco.
Get to know the Coit Tower in San Francisco
Located on top of Telegraph Hill, this monument is dedicated to the brave firemen of San Francisco. The tower was built in 1933 thanks to a donation from the eccentric Lillie Hitchcock Coit, who left her fortune for the beautification of the city.
When visiting the monument, don’t miss the unique paintings on the inside of the tower. You might like to know that 25 painters worked on that project, and the result shows you the life in America during the great depression. A site worth seeing!
Around the tower you can enjoy the greenery of Pioneer Park. To learn more about San Francisco tourist attractions, watch our Washington Square, Transamerica Pyramid & Chinatown video guides to learn about other great attractions in the area of Coit Tower.
