part of them don't act by vandalism, but because of
a lack of information.
° "These cultural and natural sites constitute, together
with many others, a common heritage, to be treasured
as unique testimonies to an enduring past. Their disappearance
would be an irreparable loss for each and every one
of us. And yet, most are threatened, particularly in
present times. The preservation of this common heritage
concerns us all."

beautifully decorated walls in order to better photograph or raise
