Mines that can be visited underground: Roros

The area extended in 2010 includes a mine/museum called Olav's Mine.

https://rorosmuseet.no/en/olavs-mine

Back in 2012, a man at the visitor center in Roros gave me a ride on his motorcycle to this mine, which is at least 10 km away.

No trolling in Norway!

It's not logged as a minor boundary modification on the UNESCO website. Just a clarification. Minor boundary modifications are discussed (well, read aloud) at the WHC meeting.

- Lübeck
- Melaka and George Town (Fort Cornwallis in George Town)

Sator Square (or Rotas Square)

Interesting one, but if Els OK to add this connection, I would suggest to limit with only tangible site. The word square in Modena and Genoa are on movable document.

I would request that we add a Pausanias connection. He was the first (?) travel writer in antiquity and he contributed greatly to our current understanding of the world heritage sites.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pausanias_(geographer)

Sites he described:
Athens
Delphi
Olympia
Bassae
Jerusalem
Antioch
...

Probably many more sites (Pyramids, ...).

For the connection "Peter Paul Rubens", one can add Vatican City - Rubens must have visited the Vatican Museums, as he copied artworks in the museum, like the Laocoon group and the Belvédère torso.
