The landscapes of Risco Caído, in Spain, and Budj Bim, in Australia, were entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List

In the last week, the Unesco awarded the title of World Heritage to two Brazilian paradises, Paraty and Ilha Grande, both in Rio de Janeiro. Now, two more world destinations have been added to the list: the landscapes of Risco Caído, in Spain, and Budj Bim, in Australia.

With the inclusion, Spain now has 48 assets in the UNESCO World Heritage, being the third country with the highest presence in this list, behind only China. Located in the interior of the island of Gran Canaria, Risco Caído is a steep region, full of ravines and with more than 1500 caves distributed in approximately 18 thousand hectares.

The declaration of Unesco was not only motivated by the historical and archaeological importance of the natural cavities, but also by its surroundings, which gather traces of aboriginal peoples who inhabited the region, which is full of vertical villages, ponds, temples, inscriptions, among other treasures.

Already Budj Bim, located in southeastern Victoria, was created around 6,600 years ago by Australia's aboriginal populations, the Gunditjmara, who developed, for example, a sophisticated aquaculture network.

THE Unesco highlighted that the ancient canals, built to dam flood water and capture eels, provided this population with an economic and social base for six millennia.

In addition, more than 300 stone buildings indicate permanent homes of this civilization, which goes against the perception that all Aboriginal peoples were nomads.
