One of the most important landmarks of Dublin is Dublin Castle. Commissioned to be built by King John in 1204 with the objective of defending the city in the wake of the Norman Invasion of Ireland in 1169, and located at the heart of the historic district of Dublin, it is without a doubt one of Dublin’s favourite touristic sites. There is also the Spire of Dublin, officially titled the "Monument of Light", which is a 120 metre tall spire on O'Connell Street, intended to mark the city's place in the 21st century. The top is illuminated during the night to provide a beacon in the night sky across the city. One of the most popular and photograped tourist sites in Dublin is the Ha'penny Bridge; an old iron footbridge over the River Liffey, considered one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks. Dublin is proud to have more green park spaces than any other European capital city, with 97% of residents living within 300 metres of a park.
