Description

Can you imagine that a small island of 444m2 made it to the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list, where only a few other Caribbean
islands are featured? Curacao has more than 860 historical buildings and archeological sites. These monuments hold a lot of history, not only
examples of European colonialism but also African traditions that withheld the test of time and are now still embedded in the culture of
Curaçao. On the 4th of December 2022, Curacao will be celebrating 25 years on the World Heritage list. On the 4th of December 2022,
Willemstad will be celebrating 25 years of World Heritage. What does this mean? That Curaçao, has on its territory a site of exceptional
quality, that has to be conserved for the good and overall knowledge of humanity.
Willemstad consists of 4 districts, Punda, Pietermaai, Scharloo, and Otrobanda, each section with its own stories. The designer Eugenique
Wilkins painted 16 colorful stamps that will be part of a booklet that consists of a compilation of stories & stamps that demonstrate how
beautiful the Inner city truly is.
