Located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, the wrought iron lattice tower is approximately 324 metres tall (1, 063 feet) and is officially the tallest structure in Paris.
The Eiffel Tower was designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel. His design for a structure was chosen from a selection of over 107 projects that had been put forward as entries for the 1889 World Fair. After Eiffel’s design was chosen, construction began to take place around 1887. Taking only 2 years, 2 months and 5 days of construction, the structure was officially finished on the 31st of March 1889.
At first criticised by Parisians for its appearance, the Eiffel Tower is now an icon that receives millions of visitors a year.
