World Heritage Encounter

World Heritage Encounter

UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. Among its many functions, UNESCO works to promote understanding and appreciation for the value of each civilisation and culture. The World Heritage List is a list of sites forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value, of which Spain has 40.  This itinerary visits a selection of these significant sites, including the old town of Avila, the old city of Salamanca, the old city of Caceres, the archaeological ensemble of Merida and the historic centre of Cordoba.
