Durham Cathedral and Castle has come out top in a poll of places residents feel most proud of in the North East.
Durham Cathedral and Castle dominates the city's skyline
The landmark beat off the Penshaw Monument and Seaburn Beach, both in Sunderland, after more than 1,600 votes were cast in an online survey.
Six authorities in the region invited people to vote in the Pride of Place Poll for one of 10 local spots.
Voters claimed the cathedral and castle gave a "spectacular view as visitors arrive in Durham".
Second-placed Penshaw Monument was built in 1844 in honour of the first Earl of Durham and stands on a limestone hill in the middle of the Great North Forest.
In contrast, the stretch of golden sand at Seaburn was third and applauded for its green, traffic-free promenade.
The top spots in each authority were Ridley Park in Blyth Valley, Beamish Museum in Chester-le-Street, the Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough and Roseberry Topping in Redcar and Cleveland.
Nationally, the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Temple in Neasden, north-west London came out top with 2,344 votes.
