Le Havre, celebrates 10 years recognition by UNESCO
Submitted by Le Havre on JULY 15, 2015
Modern architecture, trendsetter urbanism. Here are the criteria used 10 years ago by UNESCO to include the Norman city of Le Havre in the World Heritage list of UNESCO.
It was July 15, 2005; the city of Le Havre had suffered from a lack of recognition, for its history and its architecture. This label illuminated the city of Le Havre, and led the tourists to distant Alabaster Coast, which was up to this time unrecognized.
To celebrate the first decade of Havre-Unesco, the inhabitants of the city were invited this morning (July 15) to form the number 10 (see photo). A website was also created to showcase the different sites of the city and to rebuild the history of the Ocean Gate
