Robert Louis Stevenson
1. Edinburg (buried and born)
2. Causses & Cevennes (his book Travels with a Donkey in the CÚvennes)
3. ... ??? (maybe St. Kilda? Or somewhere in Polynesia?)

Who knows a third?

while the ossuary in Sedlec is not part of the WHS, the ossuary in Evora is. So you could pick that one.

yes, that's already there (http://www.worldheritagesite.org/tag.php?id=61), the topic is a bit old but I wanted to re-use it for a new query (about RL Stevenson)

Bali Subak.
I think we would need to ensure that the definition required the rice growing to be a significant aspect to avoid any site with a rice field somewhere in it getting connected!

Pearling

Ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani and Ruins of Songo Mnara

Brief Description

The remains of two great East African ports admired by early European explorers are situated on two small islands near the coast. From the 13th to the 16th century, the merchants of Kilwa dealt in gold, silver, pearls, perfumes, Arabian crockery, Persian earthenware and Chinese porcelain; much of the trade in the Indian Ocean thus passed through their hands.

I think rice terrace would be nice as it is more specific but it may duplicate man made terrace, also Phillipine, Hani and Bali are all rice terraces.

rice terraces

I'm agree with you, I think "Rice terraces" would be better than "Rice growing".

A possible negative of limiting the Connection to "Rice Terraces" is that it would block out places like Hahoe/Yangdong which are significantly about "Rice Cultivation". Lots of Rice Cultivation around the World doesn't use "Terraces".

I am never quite sure if we allow buildings "designed by" as equivalent to "Built by" under this Connection.

Never mind - Domenico Trezzini from Astano in the Ticino designed large parts of St Petersburg for Peter the Great - some of which are definitely still standing! See http://www.saint-petersburg.com/italian/domenico-trezzini/

One of the houses he designed, is now a boutique hotel called "The Trezzini Palace". Its history is here but only in Russian. http://trezzinipalace.com/istoriya-otelya
If my understanding of the Google translation is correct it was granted to his descendents (his son was also an architect who worked in St Petersburg) and he may even have lived in it for a short period before his death.

There was also another Swiss Trezzini who worked in St Petersburg - Pietro Antonio Trezzini https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Antonio_Trezzini . Indeed it appears that a number of Swiss architects went to St Petersburg -see this article by the Swiss Dept of Foreign Affairs - http://www.swissworld.org/en/culture/st_petersburg/architects/
But I can find nothing about their "ownership" of any property there
Enough to go with??

No we don't. Maybe a few have crept in, but we are looking for owners/patrons.

There are separate connections for architects.
