St. Lucia Pitons
UNESCO World Heritage Site

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) named St. Lucia's Pitons Management Area (PMA) a World Heritage Site

The PMA extends over 11 square miles and includes the magnificent twin peaks of Gros and Petit Piton, the town of Soufriere, the nearby coral reefs, sulphur springs -- one of the world's few drive-in volcanoes -- and the rare animal and plant species that thrive in the area.

UNESCO names properties World Heritage Sites when they are considered to have “outstanding universal value,” from an aesthetic, cultural and/or scientific point of view. Such an honor reflects St. Lucia's beauty and commitment to eco-friendly development and preservation.
