The Eiffel Tower is a 324 meter-high puddled iron tower (with antennas) located in Paris, at the north-western end of the Champ-de-Mars park on the banks of the Seine in the 7th arrondissement. Built by Gustave Eiffel and his collaborators for the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1889, and initially named “300 meters tower”, this monument has become the symbol of the French capital and a leading tourist site. It is the second most visited site in the world 7 million plus every years. It welcomed its 250 millionth visitor in 2010. From a height of 312 meters, it was the tallest monument in the world for 41 years. Used in the past for many scientific experiments, it now serves as a transmitter of radio and television programs. So I went to see the tower and took some pictures.
