Tour Eiffel

Kate and Vincent see the Eiffel Tower from the rowing boat on Kate’s 17th birthday. Today it is the most recognized landmark in the whole world. When it was erected in 1889 to become the entrance to the World Fair 1889  grounds the iron lattice tower wasn’t that beloved at all. The Parisians were afraid it would collapse over their heads. It never did. And up to today the tower that was later named after its architect Gustav Eiffel is the tallest structure of Paris.
