UNESCO World Heritage sites are outstanding testimonies to the history of mankind and nature: silent yet eloquent witnesses to magnificent cultural achievements and natural phenomena. Only the most exceptional examples are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list and enjoy the special international protection associated with that status.
