UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines
There are six UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines and nineteen sites on the Tentative List (see the List)
Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras
The high rice fields of Ifugao have followed the contours of the mountains for 2,000 years. They are the result of knowledge passed down from generation to generation and are the expression of sacred traditions and a delicate social balance. The rice terraces have contributed to the creation of a beautiful landscape that expresses the harmony between man and the environment.
Historic City of Vigan
Vigan was founded in the 16th century and is the best-preserved example of a Spanish colonial city in Asia. The town represents a unique combination of Asian construction style and European colonial architecture and planning. Cultural elements from other parts of the Philippines have merged with Chinese and European influences, resulting in a cityscape that can hardly be found anywhere else in East and Southeast Asia.
Baroque Churches of the Philippines
These four churches, the first of which was built by the Spaniards in the late 16th century, are located in Manila, Santa Maria, Paoay, and Miag-ao. Their unique architectural style is a reinterpretation of the European Baroque by Chinese and Filipino artisans.
