20 Little Known UNESCO World Heritage Sites

More than 1000 places are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites because of their exceptional historic, cultural, natural or scientific importance. Many of these sites are well-known tourist attractions, such as the Grand Canyon, Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal and the Vatican.

Others, including the 20 on our list, are not very well known at all but this doesn’t make them any less fascinating. Call it an alternate bucket list.
