The Eiffel Tower is one of the most recognizable structures in the world and the tallest structure in Paris.
It was designed by Gustave Eiffel and constructed from 1887-89.
The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall. Its base is square, measuring 125 metres (410 ft) on each side. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to become the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years until the Chrysler Building in New York City was finished in 1930. The Eiffel Tower is the second-tallest structure in France after the Millau Viaduct. The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first and second levels. The top level's upper platform is 276 m (906 ft) above the ground. *
