"If Delicate Arch has any significance it lies, I will venture, in the power of the odd and unexpected to startle the senses and surprise the mind out of their ruts of habit."

Delicate Arch is a single-tile impassable Natural Wonder in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. The Arch occupies a Desert tile, and provides +2 Civ6Faith Faith, +1 Civ6Gold Gold, and +2 Appeal to each adjacent tile.

In Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, discovering Delicate Arch grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.

StrategyEdit

Like other impassable wonders, the Delicate Arch tile offers no benefits, and cannot be developed or improved. However, Delicate Arch provides +2 Civ6Faith Faith and +1 Civ6Gold Gold to up to six adjacent tiles; these yields are cumulatively worth considerably more than the dead tile. It is usually worth incorporating single-tile wonders within city borders to maximize their yields. The Appeal bonus of Delicate Arch is also ideal for building Neighborhoods, and is useful when founding National Parks.

Civilopedia entryEdit

A remarkable rock formation long ago caught the attention of people in the American southwest. The towering formation resembles the waist and legs of a bow legged person. Newspaper editors nicknamed it the “Gigantic Window,” “Chaps,” and “Schoolmarm’s Bloomers,” though Frank Beckwith’s “Delicate Arch” stuck in 1934.

The precarious sandstone arch is as tall as a six-story building, which unfortunately sealed its fate. Both gravity and Utah’s winds will eventually lead to the arch’s collapse. Nature alone hasn’t taken its toll—despite its name, some ill-advised attempts to climb the Delicate Arch have damaged the majestic structure.

TriviaEdit

  • Delicate Arch is the smallest real-life wonder to appear in Civilization VI, at only 18m (60ft) in height.
