The Eiffel TowerThe Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and Paris.
The Eiffel Tower, which is the tallest building in Paris, was designed by an engineer, Gustave Eiffel, as the entrance arch for the 1889 World's Fair.
The tower stands 324 m (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-story building.
