The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most recognized landmarks in the world and the last remaining of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Located on the outskirts of Cairo, this ancient structure's construction dates back to about 4,500 years ago and stands at a height of 147 meters. Visitors can explore the interior of the pyramid, learn about its fascinating history, and enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding desert landscape.

The three massive pyramid tombs of Giza are an internationally recognizable sight- and one of the only wonders of the world that remains standing. While we know about the ancient Egyptians shrouding past pharaohs with luxuries in these elaborate tombs (and about mummies-yikes!), so much remains unknown about the origins of these pyramids. Scientists are puzzled at just how, without modern technologies, such intricate structures of this size could have been constructed.
