Unesco set to evaluate Machu Picchu

Unesco continues to play a vital role in ensuring that important landmarks around the world - either natural or man-made - are preserved as much as possible.

Some of the most recognisable places on the planet are protected by World Heritage Status, including Machu Picchu.

The Inca citadel was given the accreditation in 1983 and bosses at Unesco continue to monitor the area closely.

Thousands of people take Peru holidays in order to see the magnificent sanctuary in all its glory, which makes it even more important that the region is kept in pristine condition.

According to T-News, Unesco representatives are scheduled to visit Machu Picchu between May 20th and 26th to see how conservation efforts are going.

The team will assess whether recommendations it made last year have been acted upon and further improvements may be suggested.

They will also analyse the accessibility of the Santa Maria-Santa Teresa alternative route during their visit.
