Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, designed by Gustave Eiffel, was erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair. The 1,063-foot-tall tower (324m) — an antenna tacks on an additional 17 feet  (5m)— is the most-visited paid monument in the world, receiving nearly 300 million visitors over 125 years.
