So I was able to get them all in the end. What they are are distinct regions which have (or had - Cornish and Manx are dead) a distinct Celtic language.

I guessed CN tower as well. The definitions for tallest building always seemed to be a bit unclear to me. is it not a building because there are no lower floors? it's basically just an elevator all the way up to the the observation area and the restaurant and all that stuff. that's the only thing I can think of that would create a distinction
report

level 71
Sep 21, 2017
From Wikipedia: "only buildings with continuously occupiable floors are included, thus non-building structures, including towers, are not included."

The main reason for this distinction, I think, is that if you include all structures then, for a long time, the tallest "building" in the world would have been various radio masts and towers. Though the Burj Khalifa is now currently taller than any of them. Going back into history there are many other structures that were at one time the world's tallest but yet are not always considered buildings. You've got various cathedrals, the Eiffel Tower, the Washington Monument, and the great pyramids of Giza.

Why would anyone feel the need to say that? The question isn't what the top 6 tallest buildings in the world are, it's what were the last 6 buildings in history to hold the title of "world's tallest." If we were talking about the current tallest then only the Burj Khalifa and Taipei 101 would make the list. (if including buildings that have been destroyed and counting spires as part of the height of the building, then Taipei 101 would be off and the old WTC would be on)

They had significant Celtic populations before Roman conquests and "all" Brittany Celts are descendants of Celts from ~Galicia (DNA-evidence has proved these peoples emigrated around 5000BC, prior to Celts also spreading around western continental Europe, and even central Europe). However, even though a lot of the Celtic culture has survived in Galicia (and Asturia), the Celtic language has not.

Please accept "Twin Towers" for the World Trade Center clue. New Yorkers exclusively referred to the buildings by that term. "World Trade Center" is the term for the entire building complex (which I believe had seven buildings). The North and South Tower were by far the most notable buildings of the Trade Center, so some people think they were the World Trade Center itself, but that's not correct. They were just part of it.
