July 16th will mark five years since the Antigua Dockyard was bestowed the honour of joining a list of other international historical places as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In order to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a place or structure must have cultural, historical and/or natural significance, and in 2016, Antigua and Barbuda joined eight other Caribbean islands that have historic sites designated as such by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee.
It’s a place of many names: English Harbour in Antigua, the Sailing Capital of the Caribbean; the stomping grounds of Horatio Nelson; a UNESCO site.
