COME ON!!!! More people know the Statue of Liberty than Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids???????


The pyramids are the most famous landmark ever for the simple reason that they have been amazing people for 4000 years... Alexander the Great was amazed by them... Julius Cesar was amazed by them, Napoleon was amazed by them...

Probably, Eiffel Tower, Statue Of Liberty, Pyramids & Sydney Opera House (In no particular order) They have the most recognizable shapes IMO.

I would say without doubt the Eiffel Tower because it's the only very famous symbol of Paris which stands out on its own and is a very simple yet bold structure.

The "only" very famous symbol of Paris???

You must be kidding:

The Arc de Triomphe:




Notre-Dame:





The Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre:





The Louvre and its pyramid:




And I would add the Opera. All those ^are very famous Parisian landmarks.


But it's true, she's the most famous landmark in the world:

Definitely The Eiffel and it's arguebly the most recognizable free standing structure in Europe or perhaps The World!
