All the Unesco World Heritage Sites in Spain
There are 46 Unesco World Heritage Sites in Spain, the third most of any country. Only Italy and China have more. Since we’ve spent more time in Spain than any other foreign country, we’ve visited a lot of them.
Spain’s history is rich. There are recently discovered Paleolithic era caves covered in ancient art. It was a province of the Roman Empire. The Moors conquered most of the peninsula in the eighth century and left behind their art and architecture in Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, Toledo, and more. And finally, of course, the Christians built many extraordinary churches.
Below is a list of the Unesco sites in Spain. The year in parentheses after the title is the year they were inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage list.
