Globe Roundabout, Jeddah

Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Come to Jeddah and see a globe on a roundabout, woohoo rock n roll. You would get more excitement watching paint dry.  more »
  • Nothing particularly special to see here. I was driven past it at night in an Uber when I visited Jeddah in Nov 2019. There was a lot of traffic but not really much to see. Not worth a special trip...  more »
  • Jeddah is an historic city with much to offer. Unfortunately, the country is run by ignorant fools who believe in repression as a way of life. Poverty is visible everywhere.  more »
  • It is a beautifully designed new place that gave one the feeling of Dubai almost. The atmosphere was pleasant and friendly.
  • Sorry Miami sorry Dubai we are Jeddah the best & beautiful city in the world 🌎🌊
  • Looks awesome but no place to park vehicle and click pics
  • very good roundabout you can drive around it and go anywhere you like lol ... and I bet you can't find your country on the map ( don't bother ) every time I drive by it I wonder how do they change the light inside it and clean it🤔?? I still give these roundabout a five stars . note : don't worry it won't fall on your head just drive by it and don't give it that wired look
  • Very good but evry Friday night soo traffic 🚥
