PARIS (AP) — The Eiffel Tower reopened to visitors Monday afternoon.

The monument, which dimmed its lights in mourning following Friday’s attacks in Paris, has also been re-lit in blue, white and red.

The 116-year-old international symbol of Paris will remain lit up in the colors of the French flag for three nights.

Monuments around the world have done the same in recent days in a show of sympathy with Paris, including the Sydney Opera House, Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, One World Trade in New York and Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue.
