It's not "just a wall," really. The reason it was chosen as one of the new wonders of the world is that it took such strength and perseverance to build.

And it keeps the rabbits out.

God I love that ad.

Elle's right. It's amazing and totally deserves the title of Marvel. What I don't agree with is the choosing of the Corcovado. I've been there, and it's no biggie.

I would've chosen the Church of St. Vasily. Or the Hagia Sophia. Or the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. Or Versailles.
