I guess Tintagel might not be up there with the Great Wall of China, or the Pyramids, or all those really famous places... but I'm only a beginning world traveller, and I found it impressive. The view from the top of the island is breathtaking, too.

In regards to Stonehenge being "just a pile of rocks"... pretty much everything is (just) a pile of rocks, when you get down to it.

from a u2 point of view

moydrum castle, athlone, in county westmeath, Ireland

commonly mistaken to be slane castle



in response to tintagel castle, i often thought Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness, Scotland was castle to categorise in the same type of castle, ie castle ruins

LMAO!! I can beat that - the big orange at Waikerie in SA

Seriously tho, I haven't done a huge amount of travelling, but i have to say the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen was the New York Skyline at night, the night I arrived there.

I have (almost) climbed Uluru (I got a bit freaked out near the top!!) which was pretty spectacular.

The Lincoln Monument in Washington DC was pretty impressive, tho all I could think of was that episode of The Simpsons where Lisa is talking to Lincoln in the monument.

And, yes, on a sunny day, Sydney Harbour is STUNNING!!!!

I agree and me too climbed to the top of the thing and it was hell getting down!!!

I thought the most impressive thing was I got up there at all!

Most impressive was going to the top of the volcano where the public was allow...Mt. Tiede.

Traveling by camel in the Canary Islands. Spectacular!

Obviously you haven't seen "Larry the Lobster" at Kingston in SA.

When you live in NY you take the Statue of Liberty for granted.

I'm confused now, though. I took a picture of this exact doorway in August, and told everyone it was Westminster Abbey. We never went in, though, cos we were trying to see all of London in a day.
Then, someone told me that was actually St Mary's church, which is right next door to Westminster Abbey. But we were walking around the city with a guy who knew London, so hopefully he knew that it was Westminster... help??

That's Westminster Abbey. It's the side that's sort of in a little square, off the road. There's another side that's in a lot of photographs as well (the side with the two tall towers), so that maybe why the person was confused. St. Margaret's is the little church next to Westminster Abbey (it would be to the photographer's left in the picture above).

Wow, how cool that y'all have gotten to travel so much. I'm jealous.

I'd have to rank the Cristo (Christ the Redemptor) in Rio, Brasil up there at the top of the list.

And Dun Aengus on Inishmore (Ireland).

Chartres Cathedral in France.

And, although not a monument, the purple mountains of Western Montana at sunset in late summer are probably the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

Ah right... we must have walked past St. Margaret's before we got to that bit of Westminster. Thanks for the info! Nice to know I haven't been misinforming people
