The New York City museum isn’t the only surprise on the top 20 list. 

The Eiffel Tower and Empire State Building may be iconic images of Paris and New York, but that doesn’t mean they’re the most photographed. A new infographic produced by ParrotPrint reveals that the Guggenheim Museum in New York is actually the most snapped, followed by the Trinita Dei Monti church in Rome and Barcelona's Park Guell.

The top 20 list was created by Parrot Print “using the interactive ‘heat map’ Sightsmap, based on data from a Google-powered photo-sharing app,” which also reveals how many times each sight has been hashtagged on Instagram. Data showed that the Guggenheim was hashtagged 282,942 times, the Trinita Dei Monti church 167,671 times, and Park Guell 224, 126 times.

The only Paris landmark to even make the list was the famed Moulin Rouge, which came in fourth. And museums seem to be hot spots for tourists in the U.S.—the Art Institute in Chicago came in 17th place.

To see which other sites made the cut, head this way.
