From the impressive waterfalls of Iguazu in Argentina to the iconic moai statues of Easter Island, South America is home to some of the most spectacular World Heritage sites. There are over 1,073 designated World Heritage sites across the globe, including natural wonders and architectural marvels, however the likes of Argentina, Peru and Chile are home to some of the most iconic.

In the mountains of Peru, the lost Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is undoubtedly among the world’s most famous sites. Its past is somewhat shrouded in mystery and has been the focus of discussion among historians and archaeologists for many years since its rediscovery in 1911. Off the coast of Chile, Easter Island is one of the world’s most recognisable sites and can be explored on a cruise holiday.
