Antigua’s colonial monuments, Tikal’s jungle and Mayan structures, and Quirigua’s ruins have been inscribed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
Antigua’s colonial monuments, Tikal’s jungle and Mayan structures, and Quirigua’s ruins have been inscribed as World Heritage by the UNESCO mainly because of the intact integrity of ancient history that is part of these sites. For example, Antigua Guatemala has many monuments and ruins dating as far as the eighth century. These ruins still stand as if untouched by generations of dynasties and human populations. The Tikal National Park represents an excellent attribute of nature where pyramids, palaces, churches, squares, and other structures exist peaceful in a quiet environment. Quirigua Ruins and Archaeological Park is a jungle-like place where history is recorded in the form of buildings that rose and fell in the Maya civilization.
