Paris has been the subject of countless books and albums, and thus its history and monuments are among the best-known in the world. The symbol of the town, the Eiffel Tower, is also among the world’s most famous ones. Initially a highly controversial project, many Parisians rejecting it for its industrial appearance, the Tower was eventually built and it is a remarkable engineering feat of the 19th century. It managed to exceed the Grand Pyramid in height, so for a few decades it was the highest building in the world.
