Famous Landmarks Then VS Now (The Sphinx Had a Beard!)

Did you know

Have you ever wondered what the most famous sights in the world used to look like when they were just built centuries ago? The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of Italy’s most iconic landmarks, and it has been leaning since its first day. Another iconic destination is in Egypt. Unlike the Pyramids, the Sphinx was carved directly from the bedrock of the Giza Plateau. Until today, it’s one of the largest statues in the world, and although it looks a tad beaten today, it used to have a proper face with a nose and a beard.
