Descripción

Galería de fotos de los sitios del Patrimonio de la Humanidad de UNESCO. Un sitio del Patrimonio Mundial es un lugar emblemático o un área protegida legalmente por una convención internacional administrada por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura (UNESCO).

Los sitios del Patrimonio Mundial son designados por la UNESCO por tener importancia cultural, histórica, científica o de otro tipo. Se considera que los sitios contienen «patrimonio cultural y natural de todo el mundo considerado de valor excepcional para la humanidad». Para ser seleccionado, un sitio del Patrimonio Mundial debe ser de alguna manera un hito único que sea identificable geográfica e históricamente y que tenga un significado cultural o físico especial. Por ejemplo, los sitios del Patrimonio Mundial pueden ser ruinas antiguas o estructuras históricas, edificios, ciudades, desiertos, bosques, islas, lagos, monumentos, montañas o áreas silvestres. Un sitio del Patrimonio Mundial puede significar un logro notable de la humanidad y servir como evidencia de nuestra historia intelectual en el planeta, o puede ser un lugar de gran belleza natural. A junio de 2020, existen un total de 1.121 sitios del Patrimonio Mundial (869 culturales, 213 naturales y 39 mixtos) en 167 países; los tres países con más sitios son China, Italia (ambos 55) y España (48).
