The Watts Towers of Simon Rodia took 33 years to build. They are a complex set of 17 separate sculptural pieces built on a residential lot in the community of Watts. Simon Rodia's creation consists of nine major sculptures and are constructed of structural steel covered with mortar containing a diverse mosaic of broken glass, sea shells, generic pottery and tile. The tallest of these sculture is 99.5 feet tall. The monument also features a gazebo with a circular bench, three birdbaths, a center column and a spire reaching a height of 38 feet. With over 25,000 visitors per year, be sure to inquire when the next guided tour will be offered.
