The Eiffel Tower (French: La Tour Eiffel) is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World’s Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower stands 320 metres (1,050 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building (wikipedia)
After nightfall the tower glitters for about 5-15 minutes at the beggining of each hour and resembles beautiful iron lady coming out in her jewels :)
It’s my son’s favorite world landmark he recognizes since he was about 2.5 years old :)
