Globe Roundabout, Jeddah
(3.1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A colossal glass-and-steel monument, Globe Roundabout looms over its surrounding traffic circle. Designed by Spanish architect Julio Lafente, the work makes up one of many monument squares and roundabouts scattered across the city, many of which feature work by the same artist. The giant globe lights up at night, glowing turquoise against the evening sky. Make Globe Roundabout a centerpiece of your Jeddah vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jeddah vacation planner.
