The World's Most Beautiful Buildings (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The world is loaded with beautiful buildings, and this list is but a small portion of what is out there. But a fine selection nonetheless.

There will inevitably be arguments about omissions, from the Sydney Opera House, to the Chrysler Building, and even Fallingwater. Let's not forget the sub-categories: the world's most beautiful mosques (of which there are many); America's still-visitable oldest buildings; not to mention all the incredible and historic palaces around the globe.

Instead considering this a jumping off point, a checklist of architectural must-sees for an eye-rewarding round-the-world trip.

There are sure to be buildings that you feel have been left off the list. We want to know about. Send us your thoughts and pictures from trips!
