UNESCO treaty

The UNESCO World Heritage treaty is in place since 1972. This treaty is intended to be able to better preserve cultural and natural heritage, of unique and universal value for mankind, for future generations. Countries that have signed this treaty, have agreed to commit to the identification, protection, preservation, accessibility and the transfer of cultural heritage within their country borders to generations to come.

 

Fortifications of Vauban

The Fortifications of Vauban consist of 12 groups of fortified buildings and locations along the western, northern and eastern borders of France. They represent the most beautiful works of Sébastian le Prestre de Vauban. He was a military engineer of king Louis XIV. The area has classic fortifications at their peak, typical for the western military architecture. 

Cathedral of Amiens

The Cathedral of Amiens is situated in the heart of Picardy. It is one of the largest Gothic churches of the 13th century with a length of 145 metres and a width of 70 metres. The cathedral is remarkable due to the cohesion of its design, the beauty of the three-rows interior elevation, the large covered galleries and the astonishing high windows. The cathedral houses two bronze tombs, including the one of Edward de Foutilloy, the bishop who started the reconstruction of the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe cathedral of Amiens in 1220.
