A Wonder is a building or terrain feature of which only one may exist. Wonders have larger bonuses than average buildings, so civilizations will often compete to obtain them. 

There are three types of wonders:

  • World Wonders may only exist in one city. If a civilization finishes a wonder that other civilizations were building, they will receive Gold equal to the amount of Production they had spent on it. 
  • National Wonders may be built once in each empire, and most require that all cities have a specific building. 
  • Natural Wonders are terrain features instead of buildings. They provide Happiness bonuses upon discovery.
