Paris, the capital of France, located to the north-centre of its country on a north-bending arc of the English channel-tributary river Seine. By the 12th century Paris was one of Europe's centers of learning and the arts, with a reputation for ideas and learning that gave it its nickname City of Lights. The Eiffel Tower is an iron tower and the tallest structure in Paris. It is possibly one of the most recognized monuments in the world.
