Eiffel Tower no.1

Posted by
Dokmateo (Madrid, Spain) on 5 May 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A photowalk at Parque Europa in Torrejon de Ardoz. It is a park as wide as 233,000sqm where all the reproductions of the most emblematic monuments of the main European cities as well as various leisure and similar areas are displayed.

Next stop,Paris - THE EIFFLE TOWER - (nickname La dame de fer, the iron lady) is a puddle iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. Built in 1889, it has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. Named for its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair.

The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. Upon its completion, it surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930; however, due to the addition in 1957 of the antenna, the tower is now taller than the Chrysler Building. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France after the 2004 Millau Viaduct.

Si pero no... La torre Eiffel en Paris se ve muy, muy distinta... Soy de las que piensan que segundas partes nunca fueron buenas... Tu foto es esplendida però la torre se ve "ligeremante" menos imponente que la auténtica! Resulta divertida eso si... no opinas tu lo mismo? Un abrazo amigo... Adela

@Adela Fonts: Es que no lo he visto el verdadero pero creo que es muy distinto por que el actual tiene restaurante a primera y segunda planta..pero creo que es increible aqui es la estractura que muy parecida. Espera la segunda foto,espero que vas a gustarla, por que a mi si =)) un buen fin de semana amiga!

The structural elements of the Tower are highlighted nicely against the sky. I love the gradient change in the colors of the sky.
