  • Description: The final tally produced this list of the world's top human-built wonders:

    • The Great Wall of China

    • Petra in Jordan

    • Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer

    • Peru's Machu Picchu

    • Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid

    • The Colosseum in Rome

    • India's Taj Mahal

    Before the vote ended Friday, organizers said more than 90 million votes had been cast for 21 sites.
    The new wonders were announced at a star-studded event Saturday in Lisbon, Portugal, that featured performances by Jennifer Lopez and Chaka Khan. The event was hosted by Oscar winners Hilary Swank and Ben Kingsley as well as Bollywood star Bipasha Basu.
    The top contenders for the seven wonders were last made public in early June.

    The oldest candidate was Britain's Stonehenge; the newest was Australia's Sydney Opera House. The U.S. Statue of Liberty also was among the choices.
    To be considered for the competition, all structures had to be built or discovered before 2000. All are among top tourist attractions around the world.
    The new wonders project was the brainchild of Swiss businessman Bernard Weber. He said he wanted to invite the people of the world to take part in selecting the world's greatest wonders.

    "So that everybody can decide what the new seven wonders should be and not some government, not some individuals, not some institutions," he said.
    Vering said she believes the vote has accomplished that goal.

    "We've managed to bring culture out of the museum -- out of the dusty, dry academic corners -- and have people talk about it," she said. "That, we feel, is the greatest achievement of this campaign."
