As demonstrated by our array of entries, historic buildings are all around us. These structures not only catch our eye on commutes and travels, they help define a place and are integral to understanding a place. Learn more about historic preservation and how you can play a part by checking out an upcoming Adventure in Preservation!Photos? There’s an app for that
Want to see more beautiful buildings? Check out Fotopedia, collections of stunning photographs from around the world. The Fotopedia Heritage app, for iPad and iPhone, is free and includes photos of every UNESCO World Heritage Site. Of course, our favorites are those of sites where AiP volunteers have worked, such as Gjirokasta, Albania. Want to play a part in that city's conservation?
