Greatest of the Seven Wonders of the World

Of the ancient wonders of the world, which one do you think is the greatest?
My personal choice would be the great pyramids. To actually witness their
massive size in consideration of the fact that they were built in ages
predating modern construction equipment and theory is truly awesome. Add to
this that they have withstood years (centuries) of adverse environmental
conditions and really still look good for their wear.
Which of the ancient wonders do YOU think is the greatest, and why?
I, too, would pick the Great Pyramids at Giza, for the same reasons as Ric
above, because I have been there AND because they are the only one of the
Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that are still around (I think . . . I
can never remember them all: the pyramids, the lighthouse at Alexandria, the
Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Rhodes statue, . . . )
