Belém, património da Humanidade


"Pela primeira vez a Palestina tem um bem inscrito na lista do Património Cultural da Humanidade da UNESCO, depois de o comité do património mundial, reunido em São Petersburgo até ao dia 6 de Julho, ter aprovado esta sexta-feira a candidatura da Igreja da Natividade em Belém."

Do site da UNESCO:
New site inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List:
Birthplace of Jesus: the Church of the Nativity and the Pilgrimage Route, Bethlehem (Palestine) was also placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger as it is suffering from damages due to water leaks. The inscribed property is situated 10km south of Jerusalem on the site identified by Christian tradition as the birthplace of Jesus since the 2nd century. A church was first completed there in 339 A.D. and the edifice that replaced it after a fire in the 6th century retains elaborate floor mosaics from the original edifice. The site also includes Latin, Greek Orthodox, Franciscan and Armenian convents and churches, as well as bell towers, terraced gardens and a pilgrimage route.
