The UNESCO World Heritage Sites Of The Greater Region

A new thematic page on plurio.net
It is common knowledge that our dear Greater Region is rich in culture and history and that it is blessed with stunning landscapes and beautiful towns. But did you know that there are more than 20 UNESCO World Heritage Monuments?

Every country of the Greater Region has a number of monuments on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage – and our regions are right to be proud of it!

Just to name some of them:

Wallonia counts seven belfries, narrow bell towers, which symbolised the communal liberties in the Middle Ages, and whose carillons flatter our ears until today. In Bruxelles you'll find the Grand Place and masterpieces of the architect Victor Horta.

In Luxembourg, the old town and the remains of the fortress dating back to the 10th century invite you to scenic walks where history comes alive. 

Trier in Rhineland-Palatinate is the oldest town of Germany and a number of monuments of the former roman town are part of the World Heritage, for example the remarkable black roman city gate (the "Porta Nigra"), the Imperial Baths of Constantine the Great and the oldest cathedral of Germany. Rhineland-Palatinate is also on the list with its enchantingly romantic Middle Rhine Valley.  

In the Saarland, the Völklingen steel factory closed its doors in 1986 and plays now an important role for the industrial culture in Europe. As a matter of fact, it was one of the biggest steel factories in the world! Today, exciting exhibitions are using the overwhelming remains of the factory as unique backdrop.

Lorraine is proud of its outstanding 18th century ensemble of three royal squares in Nancy, formed by the famous Place Stanislas, the Place de la Carrière and the Place d’Alliance. It's the apotheosis of the Age of Enlightment.
