The Eiffel Tower


Locally nicknamed "The Iron Lady," this 1,063-foot-tall iron lattice tower is the tallest structure in Paris. It was built 1887-1889 for the 1889 World's Fair--and some leading artists and intellectuals hated it. Today it's a global icon of France and one of the world's most recognizable and popular structures--nearly 7 million people went up in 2015!
