Top 10 Most Famous Towers
I voted for the Eiffel Tower since Paris is my favourite city.
The Eiffel Tower is (one of) the most visited tourist attractions worldwide and it's the most famous building not just in Paris, but in all of France.
The reason why this tower is so famous is because it was only meant to be temporary and it was originally hated.
Built in 1889 for the World's Fair, many Parisians hated it as they felt that the Eiffel Tower was so ugly. It just stood out like a sore thumb against the entire city of Paris.
It was slated for demolition in 1909, but when the government realised that the tower could be used as a radiotelegraph station, they decided that the tower should remain.
It was also the world's tallest building until Chrysler Building in New York City, USA, was completed in 1930.
Since then, the Eiffel Tower has become one of the most iconic landmarks in the world.
Fun fact: Guy de Maupassant, a famous French author, ate lunch everyday at the base of The Eiffel Tower, because that was the only place in Paris from which he could not see it.
