Eiffel Tower and Opera House are the two that came out of my mind, but as soon as I think of the latter I thought about the HKCEC lol. I reckon the HKCEC as a landmark too, but of course not as famous as the former two

Is the most visited monument in Spain, the second most visited country in the World. I think that the majority of the people knows the Temple of the Sacred Family.

¿Tu estás seguro de que eso está en Zamora? Yo no he estado nunca, pero no me suena nada. Es más, ¿palmeras en Zamora? No puede ser.

Pensaba que se refereria a Zamora (Castilla y León, España), pero realmente se referia a Zamora (México).

I thought that he was refering to Zamora (Catille and Lion, Spain), but really they were speaking about Zamora (Mexico).

not really famous, but the product of mass media. My father doesnt watch tv, and of those 3, he can only recognize the Eiffel Tower, because he has been to Paris, and heard about it.


Big Ben is not as famous as the Eiffel Tower, much less the Empire State Building.

The Eiffel Tower is the most famous in my opinion, I really doubt that some teens or adults can look at it and not know its name or where its located, even those living far away from the developed world.

Do you live in Portugal or in Angola?

The Houses of the Parliament of the UK, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House, the Golden Gate, the Sagrada Familia, the Parthenon, the Pyramides... I think that all the educated people in the world know that monuments.
