Some place to visit
Tour Eiffel it was built on the occasion of the Exposition Universelle (universal exhibition) of 1889 with the aim of commemorating the centenary of the French revolution. Named after its designer, Gustave Eiffel, and at 320m tall it held the record for tallest building in the world until 1930, when the Chrysler Building in New York was completed. Initially opposed by the artistic and literary elite of the city, which with this gesture was actually trying to assert its right to protest, in 1909 it risked being demolished.
