Visiting Angkor Wat was a blast. The entire complex is so huge and the buildings look so different to a German fella like me.

I also love the ruins of Tintagel in Cornwall, England. The entire scenery is beautiful. No wonder it has been attributed to the King Arthur Legend.

Ancient Ostia, far less tourists than Pompei and many places to explore, the Mithraeum in particular.

Skara Brae and the pre-historic ruins of Orkney and NE Scotland (Caithness) such as Camster Carns.  Capaddocia (Turkey).  Alhambra.  Nemrut Dagi.  Ruined Tibetan buddhist temples in the valleys around Xiahe (China).  The good old pyramids of Egypt still rank high, especially when seen in moonlight from the back of a camel or an Arab horse.  Too many to choose a favourite from, and I'm green with envy of those who have visited Angkor Wat, Macchu Picchu.........

Apparently part of the cliff and fort fell into the sea... I'm not sure if there ever was a 'back wall or not'... Except for safety - why would they need one?...  And I was wrong - it's not 600 feet it's just over 300...

I have never been anywhere, so all of the places you have mentioned are on my bucket list, which alas, at my age I will only see in books or on the computer...or in dreams.   The long barrows, Wayland Smithy, Stonehenge, and so many of the European standing stones are on the wish list.  I would love to visit anything in Wales, as so many ancestors came from there.
