Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders, said, “We began with more than 1,200 nominees from 220 different countries and here have 7 that represent the global diversity of urban society.”
Cities that made the final seven are: Beirut (Lebanon), Doha (Qatar), Durban (South Africa), Havana (Cuba), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), La Paz (Bolivia), Vigan (Philippines).
Weber adds, “We congratulate each of these cities on achieving their New7Wonders status, and we look forward to celebrating their election to the ‘canon of 7’ with their citizens in 2015. The New7Wonders Cites will now join the New7Wonders of Nature and the New7Wonders of the World in becoming part of Global Memory for humanity for ever.”
There’s so much reason to celebrate Vigan’s inclusion in the New7Wonders Cities. Congratulations, Vigan City! Viva Vigan!
