What trip to Paris would be complete without the Eiffel Tower? To many people the Eiffel Tower is Paris. However when the tower was originally built in 1889 for the Universal exhibition, it was meant to be pulled down again after the Exhibition had finished. It remained the Worlds tallest building for over 40 years until the Empire State Building in New York took its crown.

Gustave Eiffel (the architect) stated that the complicated pattern of iron girders in the tower was there to keep the tower stable in the wind, but to most people the pattern just adds beauty to the tower.
