Global landmarks are buildings or natural formations that have become popular for one reason or another. They're places that most people would recognize. For example, most people would recognize the 305-foot tall woman with a torch known as the Statute of Liberty. Likewise, the tall, elegantly sloping structure of the Eiffel Tower is a must-see on many travel lists.
Natural formations such as Japan's Mount Fuji and the Grand Canyon in Arizona are also global landmarks. But not everyone can recognize every landmark found around the world. People are more likely to remember the monuments they've seen in person or the media. Do you think you can accurately name all 30 global landmarks on this list? Take our global landmark quiz now to find out!
Many global landmarks have been designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. This is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Although there are over 1,000 World Heritage Sites globally, not every cool landmark is designated one. There are guidelines and regulations about which sites can be selected.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites are chosen because they have some form of significance. The significance may be cultural, historical, scientific, architectural or something else entirely. Getting a designation from UNESCO as a World Heritage Site is quite important. Each designated landmark is granted legal protection by an international convention, which prevents it from being damaged or torn down.
