This is actually a myth.

I believe the correct answer is the Great Pyramid of Giza?

Is searching allowed for this? I wasn't sure.

The Great Pyramid may be visible from the moon, but I'm not at all certain about it. People tend to use 'moon' and 'space' interchangeably with this subject so I've heard both, even though it makes a big difference which we're talking about. Several man made things are visible from various distances 'in space' in general (though I do not believe the Great Wall is one of them still, I think it's a complete myth that it can be seen from anywhere past the atmosphere) such as large bridges and things like that, so it really depends on what exact criteria you're going with.

Edit:

Now that we're using Google I tried to find a definite answer on the Great Pyramid and still don't know. Some people say it's visible from the moon, some just say from space, can't find an authoritative declaration one way or the other. I did however find some claims that something called The Greenhouses of Almería is visible not just 'from space', but specifically the moon. Others only say space for that too though, so again I'm unsure what is definitively accurate.
