Most famous monuments or symbols of a country are not necessarily the most photographed landmarks. For example, in France, the Eiffel Tower, the most powerful symbol of the hexagon, fails to be photographed as often as the famous cabaret “Moulin Rouge”, according to CNN.
Thus, according to a ranking drawn up using Google geolocation services and Panoramio for photos, the most immortalized places in the world are in Europe.
In the United States, even though it may seem surprising, the most photographed place is not the Statue of Liberty, but the Guggenheim Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.
The 2nd place in the ranking is a tourist attraction in Italy. Thus, the most photographed place in Rome is the Trinita dei Monti Church.
Here are the most photographed places in the world:
Moulin Rouge (Paris)
Maiden’s Tower (Istanbul)
Ponte dell`Accademia (Venice)
Hotel Paris Monte-Carlo (Monte Carlo)
Piazzale Michelangelo (Florence, Italy)
Caminito (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
St. Stephen’s Basilica (Budapest)
