What is the National Association of Mexican World Heritage Cities?

The fourth part of the cities considered world heritage in the American continent are in our country, making us the number one country in America, which implies a great responsibility with humanity and great pride for Mexicans.
For this reason, on August 15, 1996, the municipal presidents of the Mexican world cities constituted, in the City of Zacatecas, Zacatecas, the National Association of Mexican World Heritage Cities, A.C.
