If you want an enormous worldwide source of momuments that probably haven't 
even made it in to wikipedia yet (perhaps for good reason), check out what 
Google's Ingress game has accomplished.  Monuments, public artwork, libraries, 
museums and parks are all valid "portals" in the game, contributed by players.  
I've been very active in that in Boulder.


Unfortunately they discourage sharing of their data.  Though some similar info 
is in their Fieldtrip application.


If you have an account, this could do get portal lists for you though:
