The Coit tower, also known as Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, is a 210ft tower located in the Telegraph Hill, one of the historical neighborhoods of San Francisco.
This tower has been commissioned in 1933 by Lillie Hitchcock Cock. When she died, she left the sum of 125,000 dollars as a gift to add beauty to the city she had always loved. In the tower, you can admire a series of fresco murals realized by 30 artists showing life in San Francisco's 30s. Once built, this tower has immediately gained great success, other monuments in the country were thus decorated with similar artworks. When visiting this tower, you'll see a colorful monument, which has always been a beacon of hope during the times of the great depression, as well as having a breathtaking view of the City by the Bay.
