Sacré Coeur Basilica, Paris (Cristina Dawson) Annual Visitors: 10.5 million. *Druids, Gauls, and Romans who once worshipped their gods Mercury and Mars chose this scenic hilltop for their temples. A brilliant white, 19th-century Romano-Byzantine basilica crowns this Hill of Martyrs—with the intent to cleanse it from a violent historical past while wowing visitors with a panoramic view of the city below.

9/11 memorial.A decade after the 9/11 attacks, two gaping voids still sit in the ground where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once loomed. But today the towers’ footprints are filled with reflecting pools and waterfalls, in what is now the 9/11 Memorial. Bronze parapets engraved with the 2,983 names of those who perished in the ’93 WTC bombings and at the hands of terrorists on September 11, 2001 wrap around the pools. The names of the victims are listed not in alphabetical order, but in “meaningful adjacencies” that reflect where they were, their affiliations, or personal relationships (as requested by their surviving loved ones). The plaza that holds the pools is a grove of swamp white oak trees, an urban forest that symbolizes life and rebirth. The memorial’s look is the result of an international competition, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has hailed architects Michael Arad and Peter Walker’s winning submission as the ”perfect design.” The void, he says, does not tell visitors what happened or what they should think, but challenges them and gets them to reflect. Though the memorial is not officially open to the public until tomorrow, our hearts and thoughts are with everyone touched by the tragedy, and we are reflecting today.
