I have both lenses and I would definitely agree that the 21mm will be more appropriate for most situations while traveling. Yet, the 15mm is the go-to lens for tight situations and when you need more coverage than the 21 can provide.

As an example, while in Florence recently, I was approaching the Duomo with my 21mm and took this shot:

When I rounded the corner of the Baptistery and faced the Duomo, I found I needed the 15mm to encompass the entire front facade and tower:

The perspective distortion on the 15mm can be quite severe at times, so it is trickier to use effectively and has a learning curve to getting the best from it.
