Created by Google’s cultural arm, the “Cultural Institute”, the search engine announced today the launch of a new project that offers users the possibility of taking a virtual trip to more than 130 world heritage sites.

“You can visit Stonehenge, the Palace and Garden of Versailles, the ancient temples of Kyoto or The White City of Tel- Aviv. You can explore each site using Street View and watch related videos or browse photos and 3D models for more information, ”explained the Google team.
