More visitors than anywhere else in the world. More visitors than those at Effie Tower and The Louve Combined, and more than 10 times the number of visitors than those at WTC and Empire State Building combined.
15 million people go to see this building a year, and on average each person take at least 1 picture with it. This is uncouthly the most photographed and the most recognized building in the world.

Dude, I've been in Paris dozens of times, but I only 'visited' the Eiffel tower once. You don't have to go on it to photograph it...Paris has 40 million hotel guests a year, and you can be sure they all photograph the Eiffel Tower...

Once again: this is a ridiculous thread, there are many possible answers..

I think more people take pics of micky mouse and goofy rather than the castle, especially as they wernt setting off fireworks from there when i went as a kid.

So how can you prove the ESB is more photographed?, don´t you know Paris is the most visited city in the world?, so I guess since The Eiffel Tower has existed for more time than the ESB it seems to me that has been more photographed.

I also though about it, and it would probably the most photographed one if the prayers carried a photo camera with them. But most of them only carry their clothes.

I agree - It must be the Eiffel Tower. What about the Sagrada Familia, Mont Saint Michel or the Golden Gate Bridge - think that they are all top 10 atleast?
