Quito: recovery plan for convent of St. Francis

An agreement was signed in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito between UNESCO and INPC [the national institute for cultural patrimony] of a plan for the integrated management and cultural and tourism-related enhancement of the Convent of St. Francis. The complex, consisting of a convent, a church and a museum, is considered the largest monastic complex in Latin America and one of the best examples of colonial religious architecture. It is the city’s symbol and was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1976. Work begins in January 2013. Read more, in Italian.
