Sicily in the UNESCO World Heritage List  

Sicily in the UNESCO World Heritage List  

With its seven sites listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List and two cultural practices in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, Sicily is one of the first regions in the world for natural, archaeological, monumental and cultural treasures acknowledged as world heritages by the prestigious international organisation. The historical city centres of Siracusa, Palermo, Cefalu or the Noto valley towns stay side by side with the wild beauty of the Etna and the Aeolian Islands, the magnificent temples of Agrigento and the charming head-trained bush vines of Pantelleria or the Sicilian puppet songs. Nine excellent reasons to discover a country that has been beautifully shaped by history and nature.
