Wonders of the World


Giant's Causeway, County Antrim, Northern Ireland

It's hardly surprising that this surreal hexagonal rock formation on the coast of Antrim in Northern Ireland is steeped in magical legends. According to local legend, the causeway was built by Irish giant Finn McCool so he could cross over to Scotland to confront his rival Benandonner. However, scientists would argue that the 40,000 near-perfect basalt "steps" were caused by intense volcanic activity some 50 to 60 million years ago. Either way, there's no denying the unique beauty of Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
