Probably, thinking of a large timespan, the option of doing some kind of "monumentdata", like English Wikipedia's PERSONDATA, would be more useful. And lists could be transwikied easily. But it must be taken into account that not all monuments will ever have an article, and therefore wouldn't appear in the list.

The approach taken in the Catalan Wikipedia has been to get all the data from public websites of the government (in some cases by bot), and then add the coordinates in each case. Of course, it is difficult to update, but most public websites aren't updates regularly (some ever!).

Well ... we talk about 1.5 million datasets in Europe alone, maybe more.
I'm not totally convinced that these information can be maintained on a more or less current level without automatical support.

Could you please send a concept, how your ideas of generating and maintaining the lists in all Wikiepdia are.
