Overview

Three hundred years before the birth of Christ, the Greeks identified the seven famous wonders, or the seven most beautiful works of architecture, art, and history created by humankind in the ancient world. The Lighthouse of Alexandria, Colossus of Rhodes, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and other worlds that have since disappeared recall a wondrous past that fades into myth, populated by extraordinary figures and creations that symbolize the magnificence of the ancient empires. Today, the list of wonders grows continuously. In addition to the new seven wonders of the world (listed in 2007), there exist incredible, awe-inspiring phenomena of nature, where water, earth and sky create, heedless of human intervention, wonders of rare, as we;; as destructive, beauty. Iguacu Falls, Uluru Rock, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Perito Moreno Glacier epitomize works of nature that share with the works of humankind. (Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu, the Parthenon, the Christ of Rio de Janeiro) a sense of the extraordinary. From the ancient mirabilia to the most modern architectural innovations and traversing all the greater and lesser-known phenomena of nature, from the legendary to the obscure and from the vast to the infinitesimal, the exploration is a captivating journey across the planet following the common thread of wonder.
