It’s the world’s most-frequented monument and on Thursday it celebrated its 300-millionth visitor.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris has withstood numerous wars and disasters since it opened to the public in back in 1889.

Now, 128 years on, the 324-metre high structure welcomes around seven million people each year. Maintaining and repainting the structure is a monumental feat that takes place around once every seven years.
