I would describe the wonder as the greatest lighthouse there ever was.

Sostratus of Cnidus built the wonder. It was built to guide sailors to the harbor at night.

It was built on  the island of Pharos at Alexandria, Egypt 280BC to 247BC. It was destroyed by an earthquake.

The original design reminds me of a prison as the structure of it and just the fact of it being on its own island.
