One of the things we actively seek out on our travels are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. What are they? The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee was chartered to recognize and protect natural and cultural sites around the world after the near-destruction of several important sites in Egypt. A UNESCO World Heritage Site has outstanding value to all of humanity. Examples include the the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador and the Grand Canyon as natural wonders. For cultural significance, UNESCO has recognized Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the Acropolis of Greece. Visiting a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a always an enjoyable and educational experience.
