These 10 Illustrations Have Something To Say About The Famous Landmarks They Showcase

From the Mezquita Cathedral de Córdoba to the Taj Mahal in India.

From the Mezquita Cathedral de Córdoba in Spain to St. Peter's Basilica in Italy and the Taj Mahal in India, what do people have to say about visiting some of the most famous landmarks in the world? 

In a series from Pettitts, the agency has taken the most-used words and phrases from people who've traveled to iconic landmarks and transformed them into illustrations of that landmark. For example, words and phrases like "sunrise and sunset," "tuk tuk," and "once in a lifetime" describe the Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

And in other illustrations, readers can even get a few tips about traveling to each destination. The illustration for St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, for example, shows words like "security check," "guided tour," "take your time," and "long line," all of which can inform a traveler. 

We love that the unique project both highlights various travel destinations and gives us an inside look at people's honest reactions to the landmarks. 

So whether you've been to these places or are looking to add to your bucket list, check out all of the illustrations below:
