     The New 7 Wonders of the World

There was a worldwide contest to elect the New 7 wonders of the World.
The New 7 Wonders of the World built by human hands were announced at a ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007.  These are man-made wonders and, except for one wonder built in the 20th Century, they are all hundreds of years old. Wikipedia has an excellent article about the organization and contest.
