Both the pilgrimage trail to the city and Old Town Santiago are on the list. Unlike many supposed old towns around the world, this historic one is notable for a range of impressive monuments and narrow streets lined with Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Neoclassical buildings. Other listed old towns in Europe include Corfu, Greece, and Siena, Italy. In Vietnam, the port city of Hoi An has also successfully preserved its "ancient town." I loved wandering through the colorful produce market and watching clusters of women selling seafood. It's also fun to shop for clothes here. For over 500 years, Hoi An tailors have specialized in the art of creating custom silk garments. However, even more remarkable are the silk embroidery paintings that appear to have been created with paint. >> LEFT Santiago de Compostela is located in Spain's Galicia region OPPOSITE BOTTOM The Sydney Opera House was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon BOTTOM LEFT The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra was inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture BELOW Machu Picchu was discovered by a Yale University history lecturer in 1911
