Turquie : Le site archéologique d’Aphrodisias
What do you know about the archaeological site of Aphrodisias, in #Turkey? This place has been inscribed yesterday on UNESCO World Heritage. Located in southwestern Turkey, in the upper valley of the Morsynus River, the site consists of two components: the archaeological site of Aphrodisias and the marble quarries northeast of the city. The temple of Aphrodite dates from the 3rd century BCE and the city was built one century later. The wealth of Aphrodisias came from the marble quarries and the art produced by its sculptors. The city streets are arranged around several large civic structures, which include temples, a theatre, an agora, and two bath complexes. #WorldHeritage #41whc #Turkey #Aphrodisias
Argentine : Le parc national de Los Alerces
Please meet Los Alerces National Park (Argentina), one of this year’s new World Heritage sites. The Los Alerces National park is located in the Andes of northern Patagonia and has a western boundary, which coincides with the Chilean border. Successive glaciations have moulded the landscape in the region creating spectacular features such as moraines, glacial cirques and clear-water lakes. The vegetation is dominated by dense temperate forests, which give way to alpine meadows higher up under the rocky Andean peaks. The property is vital for the protection of some of the last portions of continuous Patagonian Forest in an almost pristine state and is the habitat for a number of endemic and threatened species of flora and fauna. The World Heritage Committee session will continue until 12 July. Check out our account to discover the new sites. #WorldHeritage #41whc #Argentina #Heritage #LosAlerces
Inde : La ville historique d’Ahmedabad
Royaume-Uni : Les lacs anglais
The English Lake District (United Kingdon), is one of the new World Heritage sites 2017. What do you know about this place? Located in northwest England, the English Lake District is a mountainous area, whose valleys have been modelled by glaciers in the Ice Age and subsequently shaped by an agro-pastoral land-use system characterized by fields enclosed by walls. The combined work of nature and human activity has produced a harmonious landscape in which the mountains are mirrored in the lakes. Grand houses, gardens and parks have been purposely created to enhance the beauty of this landscape. This landscape was greatly appreciated from the 18th century onwards by the Picturesque and later Romantic movements, which celebrated it in paintings, drawings and words. It also inspired an awareness of the importance of beautiful landscapes and triggered early efforts to preserve them. #WorldHeritage #41whc #UK #LakeDistrict #Heritage
