Endangered world monuments( World Monuments Fund )
In an effort to preserve cultural sites around the world, the World Monuments Fund releases a list of endangered sites every two years. This year's list includes 93 sites drawn from 47 countries, from well-known attractions to obscure ruins. Here are the spots from the list that sparked our interest, including some that you may want to visit.
In this, the first part of a two-part series, we give you our picks in the Americas, including Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin in Wisconsin, New Mexico's Taos Pueblo and Haiti's whimsical gingerbread houses. Part two will include sites from the rest of the world.
