Eiffel Tower

When i was in France i just had to visit the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower has three floors and 7 elevators it was shocking how great it was. The total height of the tower is 324 meters. It was built in the years of 1887-1889, it was opened to the public on March 31, 1889. The tower is just spectacular when night time comes around. The lights on the tower just glow so bright it's a sight to see. In Paris, France there are about 11,769,433 people in a land area of 33.6 square miles. The GDP per capita is 533.6 billion. The two original rivers that were in Paris were called Siene and Bievre. they speak french in the city of Paris. Paris is in the upper left part of France.

The original purpose for building the eiffel tower was to be an entrance arch for the Exposition Universelle. The original location it was supposed to be built was in Barcelona.
