'Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Congonhas' – Brasil (Latin America & the Caribbean) - CULTURAL - 1986 - #334 (Guessed by crimio)

image hosted on flickr

Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Congonhas por Cleusa Poloni, en Flickr

Quote:
This sanctuary in Minais Gerais, south of Belo Horizonte was built in the second half of the 18th century. It consists of a church with a magnificent Rococo interior of Italian inspiration; an outdoor stairway decorated with statues of the prophets; and seven chapels illustrating the Stations of the Cross, in which the polychrome sculptures by Aleijadinho are masterpieces of a highly original, moving, expressive form of Baroque art. Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Congonhas in UNESCO website

Ready? Ok, here's next. Who will be the fastest?

'Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu' – Perú (Latin America & the Caribbean) - MIXED - 1983 - #274 (Guessed by crimio)

image hosted on flickr

Machu Picchu, Peru por szeke, en Flickr

Quote:
Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. The natural setting, on the eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna. Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu in UNESCO website

You will have more chances but you mustn't post 3 sites in the same post (only 1) and mustn't post twice or more times in a row. So, after trying with one site you'll have to wait for me to answer or for another user answer.

I don't know how to explain that well in English but here is an example based on the last photo:

Quote:
Quote:
crimio: Ouro Preto?
Me:
Quote:
bozenBDJ: Diamantina?
Quote:
crimio: Bom Jesus of Congonhas?
Me: No Diamantina. Congonhas
Is it clear?

'Fraser Island' – Australia (Asia & Oceania) - NATURAL - 1992 - #630 (Posted by crimio and guessed by bozenBDJ)
image hosted on flickr

Fraser Island lies just off the east coast of Australia. At 122 km long, it is the largest sand island in the world. Majestic remnants of tall rainforest growing on sand and half the world’s perched freshwater dune lakes are found inland from the beach. The combination of shifting sand-dunes, tropical rainforests and lakes makes it an exceptional site. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/630
