Reading the time has never been so pleasant as in London. Big Ben is actually the name of the large 13.5 tonne bell that sits atop the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster. Built between 1843 and 1859 , Big Ben is today an absolutely incredible European monument.

4) L’Empire State Building

Inaugurated on May 1, 1931 , the Empire State Building is a skyscraper located in New York City, in the borough of Manhattan. If it is very often photographed by tourists, they can also climb its floors to enjoy a panoramic view of the city . The ideal place to take a new photo of the city and even why not to make a photo on canvas that can decorate your living room.

5) Burj Khalifa

Located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Burj Khalifa has been considered since May 2008 to be the tallest man-made structure ever built . It must be said that this impressive skyscraper measures no less than 828 meters . A very imposing structure that cannot leave tourists indifferent.

6) Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

If Notre-Dame is above all a religious building , it is also considered a symbol of Paris and is an integral part of the heritage of the French . Built in 1163 , this impressive building has survived the centuries in an extraordinary way and still retains a real presence despite the events of history and in particular the recent fire which has greatly weakened it. However, Notre-Dame remains an essential place for tourists to the capital.

7) St. Peter’s Basilica

Considered one of the most visited monuments in the world , Saint Peter’s Basilica is also the most important religious building of Catholicism . Located in the Vatican and built in 1506 , it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is also the Church of the Pope and the Papal State .

8) Time Square

Times Square is a well-known neighborhood in New York . It takes its name from the title of the famous newspaper The New York Times. It is one of the most famous and lively places in the world  : there are indeed nearly 365,000 people who pass there every day . The atmosphere there is so incredible that it is absolutely impossible not to take a few pictures.

9) The Holy Family

The famous basilica of Barcelona has what it takes to dream of tourists who love beautiful photos. If its construction is still not completed despite a start in 1882 (the end of the structural work being planned for 2026), its very particular architecture still seduces as much. It would also be the most visited monument in Spain : in 2012, it would have attracted no less than 3.2 million tourists.

10) The Colosseum

The most famous Roman amphitheater in the world, the Colosseum in Rome has absolutely everything to seduce tourists in search of history . Built from 70 to 80 AD. J.-C. , this impressive building was the witness of all the greatness of the Roman Empire. It is today considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering . It is therefore impossible not to take out your camera in front of this stone colossus.
