What's the most awesome historical place you've visited? [View all]

What specific place have you been to that just made you feel awesome and inspired by the historical nature of the place? The sense of history, as opposed to beauty or climate or something else. Just the feeling that something really historic happened there.

I'm lucky enough to have traveled a bit in my life. I have several such places. But the number one for me is:

Wandering around the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. My wife and I spent a half day there, walking among the buildings, the ruins, the tumbled blocks of stone and marble on the ground. The sense of history was palpable.

How about you? What historical place has made you think, "Just ... Wow!"
