But what exactly are the Seven Wonders, and what makes them wonderful?Many different lists have been made by people around the world, naming various great monuments as Wonders of the World. Then between 2001 and 2007, the Switzerland-based New 7 Wonders Foundation drew up a list through a world-wide vote. Over the course of seven years, more than 100 million people from every continent on the globe phoned in to help decide what are the seven greatest monuments in the world. The list was finalised in 2007, and the New Seven Wonders of the World are:Chichén Itzá in MexicoThe Christ Redeemer in BrazilThe Great Wall of China in ChinaMachu Picchu in PeruPetra in JordanThe Roman Colosseum in ItalyThe Taj Mahal in IndiaNow, this book describes what each of these monuments is, how it was chosen and why it is worthy of being called a Wonder of the World.

Just like the original Seven Wonders, the history of each New Wonder is closely interwoven with the history of its country and with the culture of the people who built it. From the 5,000-year-old Great Wall to the less than 100-year-old Christ Redeemer, every monument on the list stands as a tribute to human effort and aspirations.
