Take a Virtual Tour of World Heritage Sites

Thanks to an alliance between Google and UNESCO, you can now take a virtual walk around some of the world's most remarkable natural and cultural landmarks using Google Maps, Google Earth and Street View.

The World Heritage List includes 890 properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value. These irreplaceable treasures will now be captured on video for all to see without actually having to travel to the location. Clearly this project is of considerable value educationally, culturally and historically.
