World Heritage Day

18th April is World Heritage Day or, as it’s officially known, the International Day for Monuments and Sites. To celebrate it, I’ve compiled a list of all the UNESCO World Heritage sites that Lara Croft has visited during her travels. I had originally planned to write a paragraph or two about each of these places but, due to time constraints, I’ve inserted links to their official UNESCO pages instead.

Here are some of the awe-inspiring World Heritage sites that Lara has explored over the years:

  • Bolivia - Tiwanaku: Spiritual and Political Centre of the Tiwanaku Culture (TR: Legend)
  • Cambodia - Angkor (TR: Last Revelation and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider)
  • China - The Great Wall (TR II and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life)
  • Czech Republic - Historic Centre of Prague (TR: Angel of Darkness)
  • Egypt - Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis (TR: Last Revelation)
  • Egypt - Historic Cairo (TR: Last Revelation)
  • Egypt - Memphis and its Necropolis – the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur (TR: Last Revelation)
  • France - Paris, Banks of the Seine (TR: Angel of Darkness)
  • Italy - Historic Centre of Rome (TR: Chronicles)
  • Italy - Venice and its Lagoon (TR II and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider)

If you ever get the chance to visit any of the above or any other heritage sites, remember the key rules of responsible travel: Take only photos, leave only footprints, kill only time. And, for God’s sake, please don’t use the monuments as your personal playground.😉

You can read more about the places Lara Croft has visited over the years by checking out the articles listed under “Lara’s Travels”.
