Spain is all about the sunny sky, food, 'futbol' (Spanish pronunciation of football), fun things and historical infrastructures. In this context I must say that I was lucky to see 10 UNESCO rated world heritage sites in a single trip. Well, the trip was hectic, and involved waking up early and going to bed late, but this would surely give goose bumps, when reminisced after 10 years.For people who love history, Spain will be the most desired place for a holiday.
What's a world heritage site and where lies the importance?
There are about 1121 world heritage sites in this planet, identified and maintained by UNESCO (United Nation's Educational, Scientific and cultural organization. World heritage site could be cultural, natural or a mixed property, and spread over 167 State Parties. Sites having outstanding universal value, has been denoted as heritage sites. It's important that these sites cannot be renovated by changing its structure, but can be maintained the way it is. The site could be cultural, scientific, nature or any other significant forms, but it's generally protected by International legal treaties.
As for Spain, the country proudly shelters 48 UNESCO rated world heritage sites. Well, although my time was limited and my wishes couldn't follow the leaps and bounds; I managed to see 10 of them.
