The Eiffel Tower (pronounced /ˌaɪfəl 'taʊɚ/; French: Tour Eiffel, pronounced /tuʀ efɛl/) is an iron tower built on the Champ de Mars beside the River Seine in Paris.
At the time of its construction in 1889, the tower was the tallest structure in the world, a title it retained until 1930, when New York City's Chrysler Building (319 m/1046 ft tall) was completed (although the tower was still taller if the respective spires of the two structures were excluded).
