Here at dealchecker we love pretty pictures of nature, in fact we’re passionate about stunning spots all around the globe. Show us a picture of a beautiful beach and we’re happy as Larry. But every now and then, a piece of man-made beauty grabs our attention, so hold onto your hats and come with me on a whistlestop tour of some of my favourites!
Venus de Milo
She may be old, and missing her arms, but this statue is beautiful. Venus de Milo is one of the most famous Classical Greek statues and you can find her at the Louvre, where people dash past to get to the Mona Lisa.
This sculpture by Rodin was controversial for its eroticism as it displayed the woman playing an equal part in the kiss to the man. Found in the Musee Rodin in Paris, you can also see the famous Thinker sculpture here.
This arch towers above St Louis in Missouri, creating a beautiful focal point for the city. You can go up inside the structure to see St Louis from below, and in the evenings it’s lit up by a series of lights to show it off to the full.
Bahá’í House of Worship
Also known as the Lotus Temple, this beautiful construction has won plenty of awards and has featured in magazines across the globe as an architectural wonder. People from any religion are free to enter and it’s become a popular tourist site since opening in 1986.
Gaudi’s work seems to be everywhere you look in Barcelona, but for me this house is the pick of the bunch. Every room has a different feel to it, and all of them are beautiful, connected by the flowing lines that are the hallmark of his architecture.

This isn’t the best looking on the list from the outside but these huge steel slabs aren’t welded in place, just resting up against each other. Step inside to feel the weight of the metal and you’re in a quiet cocoon with just the sky for company, right in the heart of the City of London.
