The Eiffel Tower is one of the most renowned landmarks, not only in France, but across the world. Located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, it is one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions as well as the tallest building in the city, at 320 metres tall. Designed and built by Gustave Eiffel, the tower was erected in 1889 to symbolise industry and science and celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution.

The tower is now a major tourist attraction, and includes restaurants on the second and third floors. It also provides a breathtaking view across the rest of Paris, including the Champs-Elysees, the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur and the Arc de Triomphe. Despite its success, it was a source of much controversy in its early stages, with many, including Guy de Maupassant and Jules Massenet, objecting to what they saw as a “useless and monstrous” building.
