Globe Roundabout, Jeddah

3.2
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. Use our Jeddah trip planning website to add Globe Roundabout and other attractions to your Jeddah vacation plans.

  • Beautiful roundabout. The terracing and landscaping is beautiful, and I like the globe. Jeddah does a great job at making roundabouts look really nice.
  • Beautiful.. You can't stay but just see it while driving
  • Beautiful Globe of the earth circle, one side leading to Royal Palace when coming from Royal Airport side. The other side is leading to North Obhur and Sharm Obhur when coming from King Abdul Aziz Road. The Globe is a posh area with two mall Roshan just close and Red Sea Mall just few kilometers
  • Loooong traffic signs in weekends.
  • I used to come to this place when I was younger with my parents and relatives,, having barbecue or just fooling around. There were not such many buildings like nowadays. I still come to this emotional place with my own family.
