The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition, weighs 7,000 tons and stretches up some 317 meters (1,040 feet).  The structure is huge.

From some angles, the Eiffel Tower dominates the skyline and gives the impression of strength. From other perspectives, the tower looks very delicate.
