The new 7 Wonders Project is based on the commonly known Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. They were all man-made monuments, selected by Philon of Byzantium in 200 B.C. Today, only the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt remain. New7Wonders founder Bernard Weber has revived the concept. The key difference is that, this time around, they won't be chosen by one man, but rather by millions of people all over the world.

The monuments Philon of Byzantium chose:

The Lighthouse of Alexandria
The Temple of Artemis
The Statue of Zeus
The Colossus of Rhodes
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
The Pyramids of Egypt

“If we want to save anything, we first need to truly appreciate it!”
