University City of Caracas- Venezuela
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000


It was designed by the Venezuelan architect Carlos Raúl Villanueva and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. The Ciudad Universitaria de Caracas is considered a masterpiece of architecture and urban planning and is the only university campus designed by a single architect in the 20th century that has received such recognition by UNESCO.

The Campus and buildings of the Universidad Central de Venezuela are considered to be Villanueva's masterwork. Built on the site of the old Hacienda Ibarra (which originally belonged to Simon Bolívar's family) and connected to the new city center around Plaza Venezuela, the project required a massive undertaking of both urban planning and architectural design.

Historic Town of Vigan - Philippines

Date of Inscription: 1999
Criteria: (ii)(iv)
Province of Ilocos Sur
N17 34 30 E120 23 15
Ref: 502rev

Established in the 16th century, Vigan is the best-preserved example of a planned Spanish colonial town in Asia. Its architecture reflects the coming together of cultural elements from elsewhere in the Philippines, from China and from Europe, resulting in a culture and townscape that have no parallel anywhere in East and South-East Asia.

Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park - Philippines

Date of Inscription: 1999
Criteria: (vii)(x)
Property : 5753 ha
Palawan Province
N10 10 E118 55
Ref: 652rev

This park features a spectacular limestone karst landscape with an underground river. One of the river's distinguishing features is that it emerges directly into the sea, and its lower portion is subject to tidal influences. The area also represents a significant habitat for biodiversity conservation. The site contains a full 'mountain-to-sea' ecosystem and has some of the most important forests in Asia.


(pic: a boat coming out of the entrance of the cave. the underground river system is 8.2 kilometers long, the longest in the world until 2007, when another longer was discovered in Mexico)

Unesco: Asia-Pacific Awards










Situated in the congested ‘university belt’ of Manila, the Gota de Leche (drop of milk) building is an exceptional structure surrounded by medium-rise buildings of nondescript architecture. The building was designed in 1915 by Arcadio Arellano, who is considered one of the founding fathers of Philippine architecture. Modeled after the Ospedale degli Innocenti, an orphanage in Florence created by renowned Renaissance architect Brunelleschi, the Gota de Leche is an example of a successful adaptation of Italian Renaissance architecture to the tropics. The building incorporates an arcaded loggia with glazed terra-cotta spandrils, providing a wide verandah that shades the large windows of the building from the tropical sun. Since its construction in 1917, the Gota de Leche building has been the home of La Proteccion de la Infancia, a charitable organization providing free pediatric care and food to indigent children.

While the Gota de Leche has long been regarded as an icon in Philippine architecture, in recent years it had begun to show signs of significant decay and, due to high land values, the site was a target for real estate developers. But while most heritage buildings in Manila are being demolished to make way for modern structures, the owners of Gota de Leche wanted to restore the building to its original 1917 condition and demonstrate that heritage buildings are viable in contemporary Manila.

As a result of the project, the grace of the Gota de Leche building has been restored, and the building now sits in stark contrast to the urban decay of the surrounding environment, while the re-landscaped front garden is a welcome green space in the congested and polluted inner-city neighborhood.

I don't think FEU is a World Heritage Site, its a Unesco award winner for heritage conservation.

Torun [Toruń], Poland

Torun [Toruń], Poland



Torun owes its origins to the Teutonic Order, which built a castle there in the mid-13th century as a base for the conquest and evangelization of Prussia. It soon developed a commercial role as part of the Hanseatic League. In the Old and New Town, the many imposing public and private buildings from the 14th and 15th centuries (among them the house of Copernicus) are striking evidence of Torun's importance.

Torun is a small historic trading city that preserves to a remarkable extent its original street pattern and outstanding early buildings, and which provides an exceptionally complete picture of the medieval way of life. [from whc.unesco.org]

Caves of Aggtelek Karst (Hungary)

The variety of formations and the fact that they are concentrated in a restricted area means that the 712 caves currently identified make up a typical temperate-zone karstic system. Because they display an extremely rare combination of tropical and glacial climatic effects, they make it possible to study geological history over tens of millions of years.

Millenary Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma (Hungary)

The first Benedictine monks settled here in 996. They went on to convert the Hungarians, to found the country's first school and, in 1055, to write the first document in Hungarian. From the time of its founding, this monastic community has promoted culture throughout central Europe. Its 1,000-year history can be seen in the succession of architectural styles of the monastic buildings (the oldest dating from 1224), which still today house a school and the monastic community.

Hortobágy National Park - the Puszta (Hungary)

The cultural landscape of the Hortobágy Puszta consists of a vast area of plains and wetlands in eastern Hungary. Traditional forms of land use, such as the grazing of domestic animals, have been present in this pastoral society for more than two millennia.
