How many UNESCO World Heritage Sites have you ever visited?

The question is clear: how many? but also you can add some more information:
which ones? in how many different countries? in how many regions? which was your favourite?

The intangible cultural heritage should not be included in the list, but if someone want to mention that have experienced some, it's ok. You can include places that you have visited only partially (otherwise, it would be difficult to have a long-enough list)

My list is the following one :

Quote:
Belgium (2+1 with France)
La-Grand Place, Brussels
Historic centre of Brugge

Spain (16)
Alhambra, Generalife and Albaicín in Granada
Cathedral of Burgos
Historic centre of Córdoba
El Escorial, Madrid
Works of Antoni Gaudí
Old town of Ávila with its extra-muros churches
Old town of Santiago de Compostela
Old town of Segovia and its aqueduct
Historic city of Toledo
Cathedral, Alcázar and Archivo de Indias in Sevilla
Old city of Salamanca
Archaeological ensemble of Mérida
National park of Doñana
San Millán de Yuso and Suso monasteries
Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Úbeda and Baeza
Tower of Hércules


France (4+1 with Belgium)
Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Former Abbey of Saint-Remi, and Palace of Tau, Reims
Paris, banks of the Seine
Historical center of Avignon: Papal Palace, Episcopal Ensemble and Avignon Bridge
The Loire Valley between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes


Belgium and France (1)
Belfries of Belgium and France


Greece (1)
Acropolis, Athens


India (4)
Agra Fort
Taj Mahal
Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram
Group of Monuments at Hampi


Italy (5+1 with Holy See)
Historic centre of Florence
Piazza del Duomo, Pisa
Venice and its Lagoon
Historic centre of Siena
City of Verona


Poland (1)
Historic centre of Krakow


Portugal (4)
Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon
Historic centre of Évora
Historic centre of Porto
Laurisilva of Madeira


Holy See (1+1 with Italy)
Vatican City


Italy and Holy See (1)
Historic Centre of Rome, the Properties of the Holy See in that City Enjoying Extraterritorial Rights and San Paolo Fuori le Mura


Ucrania (3)
Saint-Sophia Cathedral and Related Monastic Buildings
Kiev Pechersk Lavra
Lviv - the Ensemble of the Historic Centre
43 places in total, in 3 different regions according with the UNESCO criteria: 1 in Africa, 4 in Asia and the Pacific and 38 in Europe and North America (in fact, all in Europe).

The most impressive one (I'm not going to talk about my hometown for being fair, Seville), probably is Taj Mahal, the penultimate that I have visit (only Hampi has been visited by myself after Taj Mahal).

Also Albaicín in Granada, the Loire Valley, the Acropolis, Florence, Vatican City and Lviv are really worth for a visit.

Albaicin


The Loire Valley



The Acropolis



Florence



Vatican City


Lviv

I am planning to visit city of Lahore..





Hi. Do you have any interest in visiting historical places and heritage sites?
I'm going to visit Lahore and some other cities in Pakistan in September/ October 2016. You can be with me.
Lahore is a historical city known for it's cultural richness and Mughal architecture. The city has more than 60 historic and architectural places including tombs, mosques, museums, temples, churches, monuments and food streets. The Lahore Fort is one of the largest forts in South Asia. Moreover, the Walled City has hundreds of houses built during Mughal, Sikh and Colonial era. The city of Lahore stands equally with Athens, Rome, Istanbul, Vienna, Barcelona, Milan, Isfahan, Cairo, Paris, Alexanderia and Delhi as a heaven for tourists who love historical places and beautiful monuments. The city is also a good shopping destination with old bazaars, attractive markets and modern shopping malls. Lahore is city of food lovers and you can find teahouses and restaurants in all parts of the city. Turkish, Indian, Pakistani, Persian, Chinese and Italian Cuisine are famous among the people of Lahore.
A trip to Islamabad is also planned.
You can contact if you want to be there.

I'm not sure, but quite a lot. Will look it up later today and update this post . However, I would like to add that there are many UNESCO sites you would walk past and never know that it was actually a UNESCO heritage sites (at least, I later found that out). It sometimes seems like countries are submitting many sites just for the sake of having many UNESCO sites :P.

Actually, for doing my list I used this site as a reference: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list and, yes, I got surprised to see some as La-Grand Place or the Laurisilva of Madeira.

It seems to be a long work, but if you know the countries that you have visited, you can discard most of the places at first sight, so it becomes mucho easier to do

24 as of this year.

I'm so jealous of people who find visiting Europe easy lol. Since the continent is so compact it is much easier to visit more numbers of UNESCO Heritage sites (of which Europe has many) at a given time. But I'm saving for Europe already. Hope I can visit it soon.

You're right about Europe. In the Netherlands you cam make a one-day roundtrip to visit all 8 UNESCO sites. You're back before dinner. It's really easy to get a higher sites-count if you live in Europe.
To make you more jealous ;-). There are seven sites within 1 hour driving from my house .

It sometimes seems like countries are submitting many sites just for the sake of having many UNESCO sites :P.
I was riding for three years twice a day by the Rietveld-Schroder house. Never occured to me that it was a special monument. Sometimes I saw people make a photograph of the building, just thought they were achitecture students doing their homework.
