La tour Eiffel 🗼

Do you know the Eiffel tower? -


Salut à tou.te.s,


In December 2023, we'll not only enjoy the many traditional celebrations. There is one extra that you might not have heard of. Gustave Eiffel, the one and only after whom a tower in Paris was named, died in 1923. For the centenary, all year round, Paris pays tribute to the creator of its emblematic monument.
