Global Greening Campaign 2021

A record-breaking 725 iconic landmarks and sites in 71 countries around the world were illuminated in green this year – as part of Tourism Ireland’s 2021 Global Greening initiative to celebrate the island of Ireland and St Patrick.

From Rome to Rio and from London to Las Vegas, a host of famous buildings and sites around the world turned a shade of green to mark St Patrick’s Day – including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls, the Sydney Opera House, the ‘Welcome’ sign in Las Vegas, the Sky Tower in Auckland, Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Prince’s Palace of Monaco and the Cibeles Fountain in Madrid.

These ‘old favourites’ were joined this year by lots of newcomers – including the Oculus transit hub near the World Trade Center in New York; the village of Portmeirion in North Wales; the largest fountain in the world, The Palm Fountain in Dubai; the tallest building in South America, the Torre Costanera in Chile; Bled Castle in Slovenia; Cairo Tower in Egypt; Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier in California; Clérigos Tower in Portugal; Fisherman's Bastion in Budapest; and Villa E-1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in France.
