Explore Giza's Pyramid and Sphinx
The only largely intact survivor of the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World,” the Great Pyramid of Giza (a.k.a. the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is one of the most recognizable landmarks on Earth… and reigned as the world’s tallest man-made structure for nearly 4,000 years! Completed sometime around 2500 BC, it’s the oldest and largest of the complex known as the Great Pyramids of Giza, which also includes the Pyramids of Khafre (Chephren) and Menkaure (Mykerinos), as well as the Great Sphinx, from about the same period as the Great Pyramid. Who built the Sphinx and why is still a mystery that’s lasted more than 3,000 years… as you’ll learn on your visit to this remarkable site.
