UNESCO World Heritage Site

 The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has included the caves of Beit Guvrin and Maresha in Israel World Heritage Site. The "city under the city" is a microcosm of caves that were created by humans, it said in the notice. An immense number of chambers and corridors are unique witnesses of a settlement period of the Iron Age up to the Crusades.
