Summary The Eiffel Tower is a 19th century iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower, which is the tallest building in Paris, is the single most visited paid monument in the world; thousands of people ascend it every day. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance for the 1889 World's Fair, which also memorialized the French Revolution. From its inception to the present day, it has remained a world famous monument. During this tour of this symbolic icon of France's history and the industrial age, Modern Marvels details the history, the technology, and the social impact of the tower on Paris, on France, and the world.
