Stonehenge

Stonehenge is the world's only stone circle that features horizontal lintels. Plus, of course, it's one of the world's most fascinating places and most recognizable.

World's Heaviest
Rotating Globe

The second largest revolving globe is the Globe of Peace in Apecci, Pesaro, Italy, which is 33 feet in diameter. At 30 tons, the Globe of Peace is still the heaviest rotating globe in the world, far outweighing the 2.5 ton Eartha. Situated on the Piazzale della libertą, it is the work of the famous sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro.
