UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO World Heritage Sites were created in 1978 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). They began designating important sites around the globe as part of an effort to preserve the world’s cultural and natural heritage. The current list of World Heritage Sites includes 1,153 properties as of 2021.

Since 2007 I have visited 410 World Heritage Sites and have documented each and every visit. For each world heritage site I visit, I try to make a purposeful and meaningful visit. I attempt to take at least one representative photo of every site.

The sites listed here are in the order that I visited them. In the case where a site I visited becomes a world heritage site after the fact, its place on the list is determined by when it was made a world heritage site, not when I visited. This is so I don’t have to constantly renumber everything, every year.

Every year the world heritage convention meets to vote on new sites. There are approximately 20 new World Heritage Sites created every year, which means I have to visit that many just to keep pace with the creation of new sites.

Contrary to some internet rumors, sites are not owned or controlled by the United Nations or UNESCO. National Parks and other historic sites are not owned by UNESCO or the UN. They are usually owned by the local government, and a few are in private hands. Member states have to apply to have a site listed, and no site can be listed without the approval of the host country. The only power that UNESCO has is to have a site delisted as a World Heritage Site, which has happened twice in its history.

With regard to the countries associated with each site, I am adopting the UNESCO nomenclature for consistency. If you have a political objection (i.e., Kosovo/Serbia or Israel/Palestine), bring it up to the World Heritage Committee.
