若在旅行途中想要學習一地的歷史,千萬不要錯過當地的標誌性建築!當然,文化也會透過當地料理、傳統服飾、方言展現,但一座建築物所能揭露的文化風貌遠遠超過這些項目。一座在地地標在本質上來說,就是過去時代的證人,見證了王國、英雄的崛起與殞落,他們不僅為我們提供一扇窺視過去的窗口,更成為我們預測未來的指引。(更別提在這裡能拍出多棒的旅遊照上傳社群媒體了!)
以下是Architectural Digest精選50座旅遊必去建築地標。這些建築有些歷史悠久,像是歐洲中世紀保存下來的宮殿及教堂;有些是因為其精美絕倫的建築魅力;有些頗負盛名,且出自大師之手,如法蘭克・洛伊・萊特(Frank Lloyd Wright)、勒・柯比意(Le Corbusier)及奧斯卡・尼邁耶(Oscar Niemeyer)等;有些顯為人知,深藏秘境……但不論這座建築出自何人之手,都能為您帶來難忘的經驗:當您在回顧旅行時,一定會想著:「好險當年我去親眼欣賞過!」就像那句老話:「旅遊是唯一一件能用錢買到,且讓你更富足的事物!」

When it comes to learning about the history of a new destination, travelers should look no further than its iconic buildings. Of course, there are other ways to discover the local culture, which can be reflected in the food, the textiles, and the dialects, but it’s the buildings that can reveal the most about a place. Local landmarks are—in essence— silent witnesses to past eras, kingdoms, and tastes, but they can also offer us clues to what the future holds (not to mention make for a great travel gram, too).
Consider this lineup to be a travel bucket list of sorts. These buildings are renowned for various reasons—some for their architectural charm, others for their historical significance, and some for a healthy mix of both. A fair amount of them are well-known, of course: Think Europe’s museums, churches, and other landmarks whose replicas live on in souvenir shops and countless photos. There are also, of course, a decent number on this list designed by famous architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, and Oscar Niemeyer too. And while some of these edifices exist off the beaten path, they’re just as important in their own right. Here, AD rounds up iconic buildings from around the world that you’ll be glad you’ve seen when you look back on your travels. It’s been said that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer, and we couldn’t agree more.
