Would you like to live in a World Heritage city in Mexico?


According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization ( Unesco for its acronym in English), Mexico has 34 recognized sites: six are natural assets, 27 cultural assets and one mixed.

What makes it the country with the most destinations registered as world heritage of Latin America and occupying the sixth place in the world, after Italy , Spain, China, France and Germany .

“The patrimonial certification for these cities serves as an important urban attribute since it promotes a greater tourist flow and a better local cohesion,” said Leonardo González , Real Estate analyst at Propiedades.com He added that this allows developing the urban image and cultural options oriented to the capitalization of this asset.

According to the real estate portal, it is hard to live in the places considered as cultural heritage of humanity in Mexico.
