Ok, I am pretty sure everybody knows this one. The Eiffel tower is located in Paris, France. It’s nicknamed the iron lady. The tower was completed in 1889 and it has became both a cultural of France and also one of the most famous structures around the globe today. The tower stands 1050 ft high and was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel. Good job Mr. Eiffel!
