WORLD HERITAGE

The World Heritage List includes 1031 properties (as of July 2015) forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value. These include 802 cultural, 197 natural and 32 mixed properties in 163 States Parties. I've visited 152 (as of November 2016). Still a long way to go, even as the list grows every year!
