While some travel sights in the world evoke emotion, others truly inspire awe. These are the grandest places on the planet and often leave visitors speechless. They are difficult to describe because words seem inadequate. In this series, I will explore those sights that I have found to be the most awe-inspiring. I’m sure everyone has their own personal list of these sights, but these are “my very best.”
In Europe there are many travel sights which are very old. However, there is one sight which “puts them all to shame.” Stonehenge is believed to be almost 5,000 years old, twice as old as the Roman Forum. The sight is still shrouded in mystery. No one is really sure who built this incredible stone circle which appears to have definite astronomical connections. The rocks which make up the site are from some 75 miles away. What people could move these monoliths such a distance and then arrange them so perfectly that they serve as a calendar?
Whoever they were, they must have had some very advanced technology for that time to transport the rocks and then lift the huge cap stones onto the uprights.
