The project has been a true technical achievement for the era and needed over 5,300 sketches and 18,000 pieces. In the course of the World Fair 1889, it has been visited by over 2 million visitors in six months only. Now, about 7 million yearly visitors come to discover this monument which is now the symbol of the capital.

Initially said to be deconstructed at the end of the World Fair, the monument became a transmitting antenna for radio and TV programs. Today, tourists can climb up to admire the breathtaking view over Paris.
