Summary:
It is called the Tower of Towers--a striking symbol of not only a city and its nation, but also of the self-assurance and promise of a new age in art and architecture.

When it was built over a century ago, the Eiffel Tower provoked widespread outrage among some of France's most prominent citizens of the day. In this fascinating portrait, THE HISTORY CHANNEL brings you the captivating story behind one of the most recognizable engineering marvels of the late-nineteenth century. It is a monumental tale of the technological challenges and architectural breakthroughs brought about by the construction of this preeminent hallmark of the City of Lights.

From the immense buttresses at its base to constructor Gustave Eiffel's personal apartment and aerodynamics laboratory at its pinnacle, this is an unforgettable historical tour of the world's most famous and fabled tower.
