    I'm pretty sure if you search "landmarks - Spain", you'll find them all. Sagrada Familia is definitely way up there....but only about 100 years old. The Guggenheim, less than 10 years. Why not search for some HISTORIC landmarks? You realize, Spain has been inhabited for thousands of years, and there are buildings there that are older than 2000 years. Most would be considered landmarks. I truly believe that people who are doing homework should DO THEIR OWN. Rather than asking other people to do it for them.
