COVID-19 has emptied out countless places across Toronto, including one of Canada's most iconic landmarks — the CN Tower.

A rare look inside during this unprecedented time reveals the building like never before seen. And much like the effect the pandemic had on the city's PATH system, there's a quiet beauty stemming from its desolation.

An eerie quietness takes hold when looking out onto the city from an observation deck devoid of tourists.

An all too familiar scene these days with chairs stacked on tables and a cleared out concession area.

The feeling is just as lonely at the tower's revolving restaurant, 360.

With the dining area closed, bottles within the wine cellar atop the tower - which holds the Guinness World Records title for highest wine cellar - wait to be uncorked when guests return.

Hidden away, locked inside a tiny room, lies a window that provides a view into the core of the tower, which feels just as vacant as the building itself.

While much has changed at the tower because of the pandemic, the views haven't and they are just as stunning as ever.

The scene at the base of the tower mirrors the emptiness at the top.

The lengthy Skywalk that funnels people from Union Station to the tower remains almost entirely unoccupied.
