What is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s stated purpose is to build peace in the minds of mankind. It is one of the most important agencies within the U.N. A World Heritage Site represents our natural or cultural wealth, the most important landmarks in the world that should be shared with everyone. Because of the special significance of these places, they must be protected for us to see, so that we may pass on knowledge of our shared culture to future generations. They can be both physical places built by man, or natural wonders.
