Named after its architect Gustave
Eiffel and built for the universal
exhibition in 1889, it is the most
frequently visited monument in
the world. The tower weighs
7 300 tons and is the tallest
structure in Paris (324 m).


Notre Dame

The construction of this Gothic cathedral on the River Seine in Paris began in 1163. It gradually fell into a state of disrepair until regaining fame through Victor Hugo’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. The success of the book launched a campaign to restore the cathedral to its former glory in 1845.
