    The Eiffel Tower was once considered an eyesore, and as many feats of engineering built in connection with a world fair, was never supposed to be a permanent fixture.

    If you were mourning your imaginary wife and could afford it, you would build it too!

    People marvel over the Angel of the north but I just don't get it. It looks like a rusty pile of crap to me.

    The CN Tower in Toronto. They're so proud of it and it looks ridiculous. But then, a friend from Montreal once said it was perfect - the world's largest phallic symbol for a city full of pricks. Lol.

    Don't get me wrong. I would be sad if it was gone but it's never been my favorite on the national landscape.

    Oh it is! Absolutely hideous, why else do you think they bunged it up in the north of the country!

    It's not ugly, but Plymouth Rock is just that, a rock about 8'x5' with 1620 on it. I bet when it wears out, they just replace it with it's twin brother.If you seen one rock...........

    The worst I've seen recently is the Scottish Parliament building.

    I'm shocked how many of you think that those major architcture is ugly!!! La Sagrada familia, wonderfula and amazing, come on Gaudi was a genious!

    TheEeiffel Tower is pure simplicity that is admirable and beautiful.

    The Taj Mahal, amazing!!!!! See the details, so wonderful!

    Don't know any real ugly landmarks , because in every one of them i can appreciate the architecture of it.
