Historical, Cultural and Natural Landmarks by Country

Historical, Cultural and/or Natural Landmarks by Country or Territory within the Latin America and Caribbean Region

A Historic site or Heritage site is an official location where pieces of political, military, cultural, or social history have been preserved due to their cultural heritage value. Historic sites are usually protected by law, and many have been recognized with the official national historic site status. A historic site may be any building, landscape, site or structure that is of local, regional, or national significance.

A landmark is a building or other place that is of outstanding historical, aesthetic, or cultural importance, often declared as such and given a special status (landmark designation).

A natural landmark is a recognizable natural feature used for navigation, a feature that stands out from its near environment and is often visible from long distances.
