The 4 Wonders of Almea? :)

Setting aside all the political and linguistic aspects, are there any great structures that could be considered "wonders" on Almea? Probably most of the wonders that are in Ereláe have been destroyed by wars. But what about Arcél? I remember reading somewhere on this site about a building called The Festival House of Uytai. I also saw the Gardens of Engidori, the Palace of the Salons, and the Great Tower of Gurdago. What are the purposes of these places? Could these structures be considered "The 4 Wonders of Almea"? :)

Heh. You're remembering the Civ2 scenario. Like any Civ2 scenario, it in fact has 28 Wonders. Here's the whole list; I've put * after anything that's not a physical structure. The epochs are a Civ2 thing, not necessarily true of the Almean reference.
