Landmarks are buildings or other places that are of outstanding historical, aesthetic, or cultural importance, often declared as such and given a special status (landmark designation).

A natural landmark is a recognizable natural feature used for navigation, a feature that stands out from its near environment and is often visible from long distances.

A historic site or heritage site is an official location where pieces of political, military, cultural, or social history have been preserved due to their cultural heritage value.
