I am 600 feet tall, but am not a mountain, a tree or a tower.
My body resembles shells being created as ribs from a sphere of the same radius;
yet I am not an egg, nor do I live in the sea.
My gestation period took 14 years, and I had more than one father.
I also have the distinction of being famous the world over;
and have even been a part of the Olympic Games.
I have hosted both the poor and Royalty alike,
but I favour neither one in particular.

What am I?
