Riviera Palace - the Winter Garden

The Winter Garden is the heart of the Riviera Palace. These photos only show a part of it - more to come!

It covers 900 square metres and is 20 metres high at the centre of the dome. The architecture of the Winter Palace is attibuted to Gustave Eiffel who built the beautiful glass dome in the Hermitage Hotel in Monaco and of course the Tour Eiffel in Paris.

More on the restoration of the Winter Garden tomorrow...

Interesting. Gustav Eiffel also designed a hotel with a metal facade and balcony on the main square of Iquitos, Peru, a rough Amazon city formerly prosperous from rubber plantations. It is the largest city on a continent that is not reachable by land. It was curious how a prominent European architect got a commission for such a remote place.
