The Lorain Lighthouse in Ohio was built in 1917. Known as the "Jewell of the Port", it was decommissioned by the Coast Guard in 1965 . It remains a beautiful photo opportunity for visitors to this day.

The Arles Amphitheatre dates back to 90 AD. Inspired by the Colosseum in Rome, the amphitheater was designed to hold over 20,000 people while they watched chariot races and hand-to-hand battles (Wikipedia). In the 5th century, it became a fortress with a small 200 house village inside.
In the early 18th century, the amphitheater returned to its original use as an arena. The houses were removed but the medieval towers remained. Today, it remains in use for bullfights, plays, and concerts.
Constructed in 1869 by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the castle was built to be his own private retreat. He built it in honor of Richard Wagner, a German composer and theatre director. Unfortunately, he died having only spent 172 days living there. It was never fully completed. Shortly after his death, the castle was opened to the public and it remains a very popular tourist attraction to this day.
