#944 Pyramids at Giza, Cairo, Egypt

On every traveler's bucket list, and probably the most famous national icon of anywhere in the world, the pyramids of Giza are of course the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. Massive, beautiful, ancient, myth-laden, impressive, they lie in the same complex as the Sphinx. No longer easily climbed, they still pose a majestic site for all to visit. Millenia before
Christ, Egypt's complex society was functional and distinct, leaving a legacy for all who lived in the area to pass on from generation to generation.
