名胜 or 古迹 or just 名胜古迹

Post by candie111 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 2:46 pm

I've tried various dictionary definitions, which have actually left me more confused on these words, so is this anywhere near the mark:

A 名胜 is generally used more to describe a scenic wonder, such as Guilin.

A 古迹 is generally used more for a site of historical interest, such as 故宫.

Therefore, can a 名胜古迹 be used to describe a combination of both, but not individually?
