The Route of Santiago de Compostela made the 2010 "List of endangered world monuments" compiled by the World's Monuments Fund.
Sites ranging from a monastery in Bhutan to the Merritt Parkway are among the most endangered, according to the World Monuments Fund, which released its biannual list of at-risk sites on Tuesday. The list, called the 2010 World Monuments Watch, features 93 sites in 47 countries

The Route of Santiago de Compostela:
The surviving cultural heritage along the route is immensely rich and chronicles architectural history from the birth of Romanesque art to the first Gothic cathedrals and monasteries to the urban development of towns and cities. Along the Route, which today crosses 5 autonomous communities and 166 towns and cities, are more than 1,800 protected, culturally important historic and artistic sites.

Despite its remarkable survival, construction of a new major highway will cause irreparable physical, environmental, and scenic destruction to the Route of Santiago de Compostela at different points along its path. Alternative highway routes have been proposed in an effort to preserve the integrity of this historic corridor and landscape. Despite these efforts, initial construction has already destroyed 3 miles (4.9 kilometers) of the fabled Route near Santo Domingo de la Calzada.
