The UNESCO World Heritage treaty has
been 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 identification, protection, preservation, accessibility and the transfer of cultural heritage within their country borders to generations to come.
In 1634, the Dutch established a trading-post near a beautiful natural harbour on the Caribbean island Curacao. During the following years, Willemstad constantly developed. The modern city consists of a number of historical neighbourhoods which architecture reflects both the European urban planning concepts and the Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese colonial towns.
Willemstad is often called the ‘Amsterdam of the western hemisphere’ by the Dutch architectural industry. However, the architecture of many well-known buildings is of Portuguese origin, and to a lesser extent Dutch. The historic part of Willemstad, the city centre and the harbours are definitely worth a visit.
