Eiffel Tower

Built by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 which was held to celebrate the first centenary of the French revolution, the Eiffel Tower was built in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days, a tremendous technical and architectural feat at the time. It became an enormous success.

Built for only 20 years, it was saved by the scientific experiments that Eiffel encouraged, and in particular the first radio, then telecommunication transmissions.
Over the decades, it has experienced extraordinary exploits and illuminations, and prestigious visitors.

The Eiffel Tower has been the setting for many events of international import (lighting up, centenary of the Tower, fireworks to usher in the year 2000) and over its 120 years, it has acted as a canvas for novelty painting and lighting schemes, twinkling lights, the skating rink on the 1st floor, etc.
