Rare Photo Of The Eiffel Tower Under Construction In 1888

THE Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) is the symbol of Paris, one of the most visited tourist attractions and the best known tower in the world. 






The Eiffel Tower is 300 meters (984 ft) tall and was designed by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exibition of 1889 and stirred great controversy among the Paris citizens. After its opening the intellectuals of Paris gathered to protest against the grotesque Eiffel Tower.


The Eiffel Tower was the tallest building in the world until 1931 when the Empire State building in New York was built. Gustave Eiffel also constructed the framework of the Statue of Liberty in New York City.


The Eiffel Tower is made of iron and has three observation levels, all accessible by elevators. The first level is at 57 meters (187 ft) and has a post office. The second level features a restaurant and is at 115 meters (376 ft) and the third level is at 276 meters (905 ft) and has observation deck that can hold 800 people. During the summer it gets very crowded and the wait can be as much as an hour per level.






One curious fact – every seven years the Eiffel Tower is painted using 60 tons of paint.

  3. Wow! I only learnt about the importance of the Eiffel Tower in James Hadley Chase's Have This One on Me,where Mark Girland intimated John Dorey that he's the salt in his stew, just as Paris would lose its essence without the Eiffel Tower.
