Spanish monuments in top five of TripAdvisor World Landmarks list
18 June 2018 @ 16:47

TWO tourist attractions in Spain have made it to the 25 Travellers' Choice Awards Top World Landmarks list on TripAdvisor – one of which, Sevilla's Plaza de España, is at number two.

Beaten only by the spectacular temple of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia – which takes three full days to tour around – the Plaza de España (first picture) beats such international gems as the Sydney Opera House, the Acropolis in Greece and the Duomo, or cathedral, in Milan.

Sevilla's liveliest central hub comes above the United Arab Emirates' Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre in Abu Dhabi, at number three, and even above the Basilica di San Pietro in Rome – or, more correctly, in Vatican City.

Spain once again enters the top five with the splendid ancient mosque in Córdoba (second picture) – giving not just the country, but the region of Andalucía two entries in a list covering all five continents – and the top recommendations refer to the 'rows and rows of beautifully-striped columns', the 'ornate cathedral in the middle of the mosque' and call it 'truly a sight to behold'.

Such a sight, in fact, that it beats the Taj Mahal in Agra, northern India, into sixth place.
