9 curiosidades sobre La Torre Eiffel


1) Su nombre proviene del ingeniero que la diseñó, de nombre Gustave Eiffel, quien era ya muy famoso en Europa antes de diseñar la torre, pues había construido gran cantidad de puentes y, de hecho, participó en la iniciativa francesa para construir el Canal de Panamá.

2) Para pintar la torre, tarea que se lleva a cabo de vez en cuando, se requieren 60 toneladas de pintura y los trabajos llevan alrededor de 6 meses.

3) La torre mide casi 300 metros (sin contar la antena que se encuentra en la punta), pero en días muy fríos llega a perder hasta 15 centímetros de altura.

4) El precio por subir hasta la cima del torre en el ascensor será de 13 euros a partir del 26 de marzo del 2010, para los adultos. Un precio considerable.

5) Es posible anunciarse en la Torre Eiffel. Para ello, es necesario contactar a la empresa Apoteo Surprise, que se encarga de la contratación de los mensajes que aparecen en la pizarra electrónica del monumento. ¿Cuánto costará? Imagino que mucho.

6) No todos estaban de acuerdo con la construcción de la torre. Antes de que se terminara, hubo peticiones públicas de artistas e intelectuales como Guy de Maupassant, Charles Garnier y William Bourguerau para que se detuvieran las obras, diciendo que era horrible y que esa estructura metálica y sin vida afearía La Ciudad Luz.

7) La Torre Eiffel, además de bella, es un buen negocio para París. El gobierno francés obtiene ingresos anuales de hasta 60 millones de euros que, quitando los gastos de mantenimiento y las constantes reparaciones, dejan ganancias netas de más 1.5 millones de euros.

8) En el 2008, una mujer norteamericana, se casó con la torre y cambió su nombre a Erika La Tour Eiffel.

9) La Torre Eiffel tiene muchos visitantes. En el 2008 la visitaron 6.9 millones de personas, a diferencia del Empire State, en Nueva York, que cuenta con sólo 3.5 millones de visitantes.

    to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
