The 'Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower made out of iron, on the Champ de Mars beside the Seine River in Paris, France. It is named after its designer, Gustave Eiffel. At 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, the Tower was the tallest man-made structure in the world from 1889 until 1930. It has become a global icon, a symbol of France, and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.

La Planète des Singes

At the end of La Planète des Singes, Ulysse Mérou, a native of Earth, decides to return from the planet Soror to Earth with his wife Nova. He lands his spacecraft near the Eiffel Tower, and is horrified to see that the crew of people maintaining the Tower and its environs are in fact gorillas. At this point he knows that the humans of Earth have declined and the apes have taken their place, just as on Soror.
