Would it surprise you if I told you that the most beautiful building in the country is right here in our own backyard? And that the same building ranks among the most beautiful in the entire world? It’s true! And it probably doesn’t take much of a guess as to what it is. Hint, it’s a very popular tourist attraction in the mountains of North Carolina. Yes, it’s the Biltmore House! This gorgeous estate in Asheville is absolutely stunning. So it’s no surprise it tops this list.

The folks at Angi  researched TripAdvisor reviews from 132 countries and every U.S. state for mentions of the word “beautiful.” To compile their rankings of the most beautiful buildings in each country as well as the top 20 in the world! Biltmore was named the most beautiful building in the US as well as in the top for the world. George Vanderbilt would be oh so proud of his mountain home.

Below you’ll find the full top 20 list and it’s hard to pick a favorite from these. They span countries and continents. And the architecture is magnificent. The sleek modern style of today doesn’t hold a candle to the intricate details and massive scale of these places. I wish we could be back to this more ornate style instead f the clean almost sterile looks that are trendy today. Which place on this list would you most like to visit? How many vacation days do I get because a trip to Europe and Asia just rose on my bucket list? You can read the full Angi study here or see the top 20 below.
