The UNESCO World Heritage List is to be enlarged. On 30 June the UNESCO Committee will reveal the names of new sites that will enter the list. The 33rd session is taking place in Seville, Spain on which the Committee is reviewing the state of conservation of properties already listed as well as examining around 27 nominations for new cultural and natural sites.
Three countires have a chance to appear on the list for the very first time. These are Burkina Faso with its Loropeni ruins, Cape Verde with its historical centre of Ribeira town and Kyrgyzstan with Mt. Sulaiman-Too.
The World Heritage List includes 878 properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage. To see the full list click here.
