I like that Lighthouse.

You could probably go anywhere in Italy and find something worthy of being a heritage site.

Great picks!
I think what cachibatches said about Italy holds true for Czech Republic and parts of Germany (the small preserved medieval towns in Bavaria for example) as well. Klatovy's Black tower looks like the perfect European medieval tower, it's almost like too perfect to be real, right out of a story book, but it is the real thing!

As a tourist, I don't find these new sites interesting. Their purpose might be preservation, recolonization, awareness something?
