Located in Champ de Mars in Paris, France. Next to the Seine River that flows through Paris.
It was first planned out around 1884.
What is it Made of?
It took more than 18,000 pieces of puddle iron, a type of wrought iron used in construction, and 2.5 million rivets to build the Eiffel Tower.
These are the measurements of the different sections of the Eiffel Tower.
It took around two years and two months to build.

It has had over 250 million visitors since its opening.
Only 1 person has died from The Eiffel Tower and he was not an engineer.
The French name for The Eiffel Tour is La Tour Eiffel
The nickname is La dame de fer which is French for "iron lady"
If We Lived Here
If we lived in the time The Eiffel Tower was built we would NOT help build the tower because it is very dangerous. What we would do is both help build and keep safe because this can give us money because of the Tourism.

When the Eiffel Tower was built, people wanted it down and not up. The reason was that they thought it was a bad idea because it was dangerous. People thought of it as a suicidal building because people can jump off like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
California. Also people thought it can collapse and fall.
In conclusion, The Eiffel Tower is a tall tourist attraction in Paris France. It Stands 325 meters tall and weights 10k tons an has about 110.2k of paint added to the tower every 7 years to keep from rusting. I recommend going to this great place.
