UNESCO Sites in Senegal

unesco world heritage sites

Senegal UNESCO commitment has registered 7 sites on the World Heritage list and 8 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 Senegal and the corresponding map.
