Caral-Supe Thibault Magnien

Caral Supe in one of the oldest cities in the world. Situated in the desert, north of Lima, the ruins are easily accessible on a day trip from the Peruvian capital. I took my tour bus from parque Kennedy in Miraflores, Lima.

The site if very interesting and archeological discoveries have allowed to better understand how people were living 5000 years ago.

Decorated cave of Pont d'Arc Thibault Magnien

The Chauvet Pont d'Arc cave is one of the most important sites when considering its age, the story it tells and the quality of the remains it presents. Those 30.000 year-old drawings are purely striking and provide a lot of emotion. The images and evidences of the cave are as powerful and astonishing than 30 millenniums ago. The replica that has been built in order to protect the original cave has been realized using real techniques and present the real atmosphere and set up.

Defence Line of Amsterdam Thibault Magnien

I have visited this WHS in September 2016. The Defence line of Amsterdam symbolises the engineering skills of the people from the Netherlands in water management. It also illustrates the spirit and atmosphere existing in Western Europe in the late 18th and early 19th centuries when most of countries were facing internal tensions as well as external pressures, increasing the likelihood of the occurence of a war and making necessary to all countries to erect defence lines and fortifications.

Campeche Thibault Magnien

Campeche is a colonial town, set on the cost of Yucatan, that has retained most of its original defensive fortifications. Even if a small part of the wall itself remain, all bastions (or forts) are still in place and give a clear and vivid idea of the initial aspect of the town when the fortifications were raised to prevent attacks from pirates. Moreover, the colourful houses, the quadratic town plan and the colonial churches bring additional interest to this WHS.

Palenque Thibault Magnien

Palenque offers a unique and striking testimony of the Maya civilization. The site is set in the forest and wildlife is omnipresent throughout the visit. The numerous pyramids and temples along with the main palace are in remarkable state of conservation. Within the monuments, many sculptures have remained, demonstrating a full aspect of Maya art. On top of that, it is possible to enter one of the pyramids to see the tomb of king Pakal.
