Saharan Ksours officially inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage tentative list

The Saharan Ksours heritage site in southern Tunisia has been officially inscribed on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) tentative list of Tangible Cultural Heritage, the official page of the Ministry of Cultural Affairs reports.

The candidacy file was submitted last January 10 by Tunisia’s Ambassador Permanent Delegate to UNESCO Ghazi Ghrairi.

Experts and officials from the National Heritage Institute (INP) had prepared the file in record time, according to the same source.

This new inscription provided the opportunity to bolster the steps made by Tunisia in the cultural heritage field after the inscription of the Jugurtha Tableland in El Kef and recently the final file of Djerba for its inclusion on the UNESCO’s list of Tangible Cultural Heritage.
