The Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St. Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier, Germany was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (WHS) in 1986.[1]

From UNESCO/CLT/WHC:

"Trier is an example of a large Roman capital after the division of the empire. The remains of the Imperial Palace, in addition to the Aula Palatina and the Imperial Thermae, are impressive in their dimensions. The city bears exceptional testimony to Roman civilization owing to the density and the quality of the monuments preserved: the bridge, the remains of the fortified wall, thermae, amphitheatre, storehouses, etc. In particular, funerary art and the craftsmanship of potters, glassworkers, and moneyers flourished in the city."[1]
