Eiffel Tower!

Posted by Amy On March - 21 - 2013

The Eiffel Tower is a iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris (France). The company that made the Eiffel tower named it after the man that owned the company. His name was Gustave Eiffel. The construction finished in 1889. It became both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world.

The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visted paid monument in the world with 7.1 million people ascending it in 2011.

The tower stands 320m (1,050ft) tall, about the same height as a 81 story building. The tower has three levels for vistors. To walk from the ground to the first level its around 300 steps, as it is for the first level to the second.

The third level can only be reached by lift as the stairs aren’t available to use by vistors. The tower was an immediate success with the public tickets costing 2 francs for the first level and 3 francs for the second level and 5 francs for the top level. When built the first floor had 2 restaurants and a 250 seater theatre. The second floor, had an office for the French newspaper Le figaro , and a printing press. On the third level were laboratories for various experiments and a small, apartment reserved for Gutave Eiffel to entertain guests.

Notre Dame

Posted by Rebecca On March - 21 - 2013

Notre Dame is a cathedral in the centre of Paris, France. Construction began in 1163 as it so enormous it was not completed until 1345. That is 182 years. It is 128m long (420ft) with two 69m tall towers (266ft). A spire which reaches 90m (295ft) was added in the 1800s. Inside there are statues, paintings and wooden cravings which are centuries old. Most of its floor is paved with memorial stones of long-dead Parisians as it was common long ago to bury the dead inside the cathedral. Ever since it was built it has been the traditional venue for the marriages, coronations and funerals of French royalty.
