UNESCO Sites in Andalucia - World Heritage Sites to Visit

Spain has a whopping 44 sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list and a further 24 on the tentative list.

The Mezquita part of the Historic City Centre of Cordoba


Andalucia has five cultural and one natural site on the list:

  • The Alhambra, Generalife and Albayzin, Granada
  • The Cathedral, Alcazar and Archivo de Indias, Seville
  • The Historic City Centre of Cordoba
  • The Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Ubeda and Baeza
  • Rock Art of the Mediterranean Basin, examples in Almeria, Granada and Jaen provinces
  • The natural World Heritage Site is Doñana National Park, Huelva


I thought myself something of a country girl but find it´s only the natural sites on the list, not the urban sites and I´m including the rock art caves, that I haven´t visited yet.




On the tentative waiting list are:

Jaen Cathedral

  • Dolmen Sites, Antequera
  • Roman Ways, itineraries of the Roman Empire, part of which are in Andalucia
  • Mining Historical Heritage, part of which is in Huelva, Andalucia
  • Jaén Cathedral, to be included in the Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Ubeda and Baeza
