Each one was unique, its beauty and magnificence lauded by the greatest poets and writers of the age. Everyone longed to see for themselves the Wonders of the World.

The Colossus of Rhodes, the majestic Pyramids of Giza, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, which withstood earthquakes and gales, the spellbinding Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the breathtaking Temple of Artemis in Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, inspiration for so many myths and legends. Just one of them survives today. But with us you can go back in time and learn the secrets of how these gems of ancient architecture were created. The building of each comprised so many details and small jobs, so much daily grind and sustained effort, with or without the help of machines. You will also learn about other buildings that didn’t make the prestigious list.
