A World Heritage Site is a landmark that has legal protection by the international convention aka UNESCO. There are many attractions that are open to visitors, and some that are also in danger.
Part of UNESCO’s charter is to preserve the natural, cultural and historic sites to allow everyone to visit, enjoy, and learn from them. Many countries have a long list of sites that combine several elements of cultural heritage criteria, ranging from majestic natural beauty (like the Grand Canyon National Park, USA) to important architectural and artistic history (the Historic City of Salzburg Austria, Gaudi’s works in Barcelona or Cultural Landscape in Sintra Portugal).
All of the UNESCO Heritage sites reflect the rich history and hence they need to be preserved at all costs. When we travel, it is essential to practice sustainable tourism by respecting local culture and customs. Let’s leave no trace – litter or damage when we visit these destinations (no any destination for that matter). It is important to continue to visit sites and contribute to the local economy.
We book guided tours with locals (usually walking tours) to learn more about the site and help local businesses. Anytime we visit and pay for a ticket, it helps towards the site’s repair and renovation.
You can also donate at various UNESCO Sites and projects to help support the cause and preserve our heritage!
we can work together to “encourage international cooperation in the conservation of our world’s cultural and natural heritage” to preserve our world for ourselves and future generations.UNESCO’s World Heritage site
