UNESCO Sites in Mali

unesco world heritage sites

Mali UNESCO commitment has registered 4 sites on the World Heritage list and 14 sites on the tentative list.

Some places are so interesting that it’s relevant to keep them for future generations. This is why UNESCO has built a list of crucial classified properties in which there are superb places that stand out for their aesthetic, natural, artistic or cultural significance.

More than a thousand places are registered as Unesco’s World Heritage around the world. Due to my personal interest in visiting World Heritage sites, I put together the UNESCO list in Mali and the corresponding map.
