Elle est haute de plus de 300 mètres et domine tout Paris : la tour Eiffel fête ses 130 ans.
It is more than 300 metres high and dominates the whole of Paris: the Eiffel Tower celebrates its 130th anniversary.
Mondialement connu, l'édifice reçoit chaque année plus de 7 millions de visiteurs.
The world-renowned building receives more than 7 million visitors each year.
Construite par Gustave Eiffel, elle a été réalisée à l'occasion de l'Exposition universelle.
Built by Gustave Eiffel, it was created for the Universal Exhibition.
En plus d'un siècle, la Dame de fer a vu défiler les descendants de son constructeur et recèle de nombreux souvenirs.
In more than a century, the Iron Lady has seen the descendants of her builder come and go and holds many memories.
"C'est moi quand j'avais 11 ans.
"That's me when I was 11.
J'étais très fier d'être venu.
I was very proud to have come.
J'étais un peu inquiet, un peu surpris, devant le grand ancêtre."
I was a little worried, a little surprised, in front of the great ancestor."
Si le troisième étage de la tour a abrité pendant longtemps un appartement venait se reposer la famille Eiffel, il ne reste aujourd'hui plus que l'ancien bureau du créateur.
While for a long time the third floor of the tower housed an apartment where the Eiffel family used to rest, today only the creator's former office remains.
"Ma grand-mère, quand elle était jeune, elle avait des problèmes d'asthme et donc un docteur lui avait recommandé le bon air de l'altitude.
"My grandmother, when she was young, she had asthma problems so a doctor recommended good, high-altitude air.
Et tous les jeudis après-midi elle montait la tour Eiffel pour passer l'après-midi dans ce bureau et profiter donc du bon air de Paris à 300 mètres."
And every Thursday afternoon she climbed the Eiffel Tower to spend the afternoon in this office and thus enjoy the good air of Paris at a height of 300 meters."
Malgré ses 130 ans, le temps ne semble pas avoir d'emprise sur la tour, qui garde une santé de fer.
Despite being 130 years old, time does not seem to have any hold on the tower, which remains in good health.
