1) The Giza height Pyramids, Egypt
Almost 5,000 years of history condensed in huge construction blocks. They remained as the highest human made object until the end of the 19th century, when the Eifel Tower surpassed them. The Egyptian Pyramids are top destinations for civilization history fans and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. Worth a visit.
2) The China Walls
One of the world´s most popular touristic attraction site. The over 20,000 Km extension Walls h can be seen from the space. It is a major human achievement and it is very well preserved. Easy tours from Beijing.
3) Petra, Jordan
Petra is unique. Historically the importance may be not very relevant, but architecturally it is different from almost anything else. The Nabataeans simply cut the rock walls to produce greek style palaces . The result is a ghostly real scale stone sculpted city spread into natural narrow valleys. Simply amazing.
4) Persepolis, Iran
The huge 2500 year old Persian kings capital was destructed by Alexander the Great, turning it to ruins. Its a pity. What´s left is even though amazing and imponent, making us only imagine how splendorous it might have been before. We recommend the trip.
5) Machu Picchu, Peru
The Incan city lost in the middle of the Andes Mountains is Enigmatic. The difficult access includes an overnight in the challenging altitude of Cuzco , a two hour train, a bus ride and some climbing, to the final reward of viewing this unique spot.
