UNESCO has rejected the proposal to recover the Ruins of San Francisco sponsored by the Tourism Ministry

Santo Domingo.- UNESCO has rejected the proposal to recover the Ruins of San Francisco sponsored by the Tourism Ministry, noting that the project by architect Rafael Moneo converts the monument into a secondary component, “which loses its preponderance against the proposal’s overwhelming impact.

It suggests developing a new project to consolidate the Ruins’ proper use through interventions that don’t alter the 16th century structure.

In its report UNESCO said work is needed to complete the archaeological and general research on the monument.

“The intangible elements that contribute to the site’s identity and spirit need to be established and preserved, as they help to determine the character of an area and its essence.”

UNESCO had requested the report of the project’s feasibility from the International Council on Monuments and Sites in July 2015, when a conflict emerged over the Ruins’ proposed intervention.
