UNESCO Sites – June 2014

A UNESCO World Heritage Site is a place (such as a forest, mountain, lake, desert, monument, building, complex, or city) that is listed by the UNESCO as of special cultural or physical significance.

The list catalogs, names, and conserves sites of outstanding cultural or natural importance to the common heritage of humanity.

As of 2014, 981 sites are listed: 759 cultural, 193 natural, and 29 mixed properties, in 160 states. Italy is home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites with 49 sites, followed by China (45) and Spain (44).
