  1. The outstanding Eiffel Tower is located in Paris which is one of the world most famous monuments. The Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel that’s the reason called Eiffel Tower.
    It was finished in 1889 for the Paris world exhibition which was designed and built just two year by 132 workers and 50 engineers. Moreover, the height of the tower is 324 m and weight is 7300 tons. I’d definitely recommend everyone must visit one in life.

  2. If you are looking for great amenities while you are on vacations, the El Cid Timeshare is one option for you to look forward to. When it comes to security, you will not have to worry about the safety of the whole community because the entrances for these resorts have gates and a 24-hour security to serve people on a daily basis. If you find living in El Cid resorts an excellent choice for you and your family so you can build new relationships with the community, you'll absolutely find this an excellent option for you to look into.
