In the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks, France’s most notable monument was closed to visitors and its lights darkened for two days, a symbol of mourning. On Monday November 16, though, at 4:20 pm the Eiffel Tower was re-opened to the public and later illuminated in the colors of the French flag – a beautiful show of solidarity and courage alike.

Below is some video of the scene courtesy of Mashable, as well as some breathtaking pictures of the Eiffel Tower standing in all its glory and resilience, shining bright for all of Paris to see.
