The New Seven Wonders of the World
The New 7 Wonders of the World have been announced during the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007 – 07.07.07.
The New7Wonders Foundation has the express aim of documenting, maintaining, restoring and reconstructing world heritage under the motto: “OUR HERITAGE IS OUR FUTURE.” The Foundation was created in 2001 by Swiss adventurer Bernard Weber, with a mission to protect humankind’s heritage across the globe.
The new wonders are selected as the people’s choices (100 million of us are voting), and they are drawn from the earliest time that humankind walked upon the earth up through the year 2000.
See the details on these magnificent man made constructions right here: The Great Wall of China, Petra, Jordan, Christ Redeemer, Brazil, Machu Piccu, Peru, Chichen Itza, Mexico, The Colosseum, Italy and the Taj Mahal, India. The runner up finalists can be found on this page.
