Our planet is rich in pristine natural landscapes and architectural works built by man in ancient or more modern times. Because of their beauty, uniqueness, mystery and history, they are places worth visiting at least once in a life.
Neuschwanstein Castle is considered the castle of fairy tales par excellence. It was built around the mid-nineteenth century and is located in Schwangau, a small town in Bavaria. The halls, in Byzantine style, between gold and ivory, celebrate Wagner’s musical genius and have also inspired Walt Disney’s American cinema.
Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, was discovered in the early eighteenth century; it has volcanic origin, is located in the southern Pacific Ocean and belongs to Chile. The elements that fascinate the world of archeology, historians and attract thousands of tourists are the Moai, monumental statues, human heads, which date back to the end of the tenth century. Their purpose is not yet clear between hypotheses, beliefs and mysticism.
Christ the Redeemer is a concrete statue placed on the top of the Corcovado mountain, in Brazil. 38 meters high and raised to 700 meters above sea level, it embraces the city and the bay of Rio de Janeiro. Work by the French sculptor Paul Landowski was then erected by Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa and French engineer Albert Caquot. Today it is included in the list of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
Stonehenge, also known as Stone Circles, is a place that many people consider mystical. These large “suspended stones” of Neolithic origin arranged in a circular manner, the megaliths, are found in Amesbury, Wiltshire, England. Various legends have been created and told on the site; furthermore, even today, historians do not agree on the period in which Stonehenge was built. The site was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1986.
The island of Palawan, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, also belongs to the Philippines. In addition to the beautiful beach and its bays, the island is known for its navigable underground river, the longest in the world. Through boat excursions it is possible to admire large areas rich in stalactites and stalagmites.
Although Siberia brings us back to the mind of a very cruel historical period, it is also a place where we can find endless expanses of woods, wooden houses, natural landscapes not yet “bent” by man. Here is Lake Baikal, which is the oldest and deepest freshwater lake in the world. Surrounded by mountain ranges, it is a pristine place where you can admire the spectacle of nature. It is part of the world heritage, protected by UNESCO, since 1996.
In addition to the Pyramids of Giza, in Egypt, we suggest you to visit Chichén Itzá, in Mexico. Here all the economic and political activities of the Mayas took place between the 6th and 11th century. It is included in the list of the New 7 Wonders of the World and declared a World Heritage Site, UNESCO, in 1988.
