Destroy is an ability unlocked after researching the Construction technology that allows the player to remove any building in their territory for free. When a building is destroyed, the city it was built in will lose the population gained by constructing the building.

Destroying buildings will also remove the points gained when building them (e.g. Destroying a Monument will remove 400 points from your score)

It is important to note that if you destroy a Monument, you cannot rebuild it.
