 "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 Faith Faith, +1 Gold Gold, and +2 Appeal to each adjacent tile.

Discovering Delicate Arch grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Like other impassable wonders, the Delicate Arch tile offers no benefits, and cannot be developed or improved. However, Delicate Arch provides +2 Faith Faith and +1 Gold 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 entry[edit | edit source]

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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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