Whats the most famous example of Western architecture? In fiction?

I was reading an introduction to "The Tale of Genji," and I was struck by the claim that Genji's manor is the most well known example of the architecture of the time, even though it never existed. Are there any corollaries in the West? Elsewhere?

I'm presuming the most famous architectural work in the West is the Parthenon, but I'm open to suggestions on that too.
