Aquileia -because of its immense archaeological site and its Patriarchal Basilica,it was designated as a UNESCO WH Site in 1998. Located in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, it was one of the largest and richest Mediterranean cities within the Roman Empire and eventually was made seat of the Ecumenical Patriarchate that lasted until 1751. Thus, Aquileia became a dominant hub of the Christian world for Central Europe from the Middle Ages to the 18th Century.
