Fortified with walls, gates and bastions, this is the only colonial city north of Mexico to have preserved its ramparts.
World Heritage Sites are chosen by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which “seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity.”
