Perhaps one of the most iconic attractions in all of Paris is the beloved Tour Eiffel. Built in 1889 at the entrance to the World Fair, the Eiffel Tower has become the most celebrated cultural symbol in all of France and is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. Standing 320 metres (1,050 ft) tall, her iron-latticed wires spire upwards to the Parisien sky. Here are some shots I took of the lovely Eiffel Tower while I was in Paris. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great but perhaps the clouds add some stark beauty to this amazing piece of art.
Thanks Wikipedia for providing the above facts on the Eiffel Tower and Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post: Attraction, for inspiring an entire post dedicated to the beloved Tour Eiffel.
