|J.C. 541. PARIS - THE PALAIS DU TROCADERO - Built for the 1878 exhibition|
Exhibition tower height is 70 meters
The Palais du Trocadero was built for the 1878 World's Fair which was held from May 1, 1878 until November 10, 1878 in Paris to celebrate France's recovery after the Franco-Prussian War. The Palais was designed by Parisian architect Gabriel Davioud. It was built in a "Moorish" style with "Byzantine elements." The two towers were 70 meters high, and it had a large concert hall in the center with two wings on either side. The structure was demolished in 1937 and replaced by the Palais de Chaillot for the Exposition Internationale of 1937.
