10Stonehenge, England – $13 billion

We begin out top 10 of the highest priced European monuments with the one of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge.

Located in Wilshire, England, Stonehenge was built between 3000 B.C. and 2000 B.C. And its construction costed $13 billion.

In 1986, the site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in a co-listing with Avebury Henge.

Stonehenge was a place of burial from its beginning to its zenith in the mid third millennium B.C. The cremation burial dating to Stonehenge’s sarsen stones phase is likely just one of many from this later period of the monument’s use and demonstrates that it was still very much a domain of the dead.‘ – Mike Parker Pearson, leader of the Stonehenge Riverside Project based at Durrington Walls.

So if you have the opportunity to visit this amazing monument, don’t throw it away!
