The 'World Monument Fund' says they include Machu Picchu in Peru. The fund says it's being worn down by too many tourists.

Another landmark includes Antoni Gaudi's magnificent Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona -- its foundation may be threatened by a proposed subway line.

Among threatened sites in the U.S. are two homes by architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the vintage bridges along Connecticut's Merritt Parkway.
