Committee Decisions

32 COM 8B.65

Examination of nominations and minor modifications to the boundaries of naturel, mixed and cultural properties to the World Heritage List - Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon (Portugal)

The World Heritage Committee,

1. Having examined Documents WHC-08/32.COM/8B.Add and WHC-08/32.COM/INF.8B1.Add,

2. Approves the enlarged buffer zone for the Tower of Belém and thus the enlarged buffer zone for the Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon, Portugal;

3. Notes that the proposed enlarged buffer zone greatly increases protection of the settings of the two components of the World Heritage site, but not the entire setting - particularly when the two monuments are viewed from the sea - thus requests the relevant authorities to protect this wider setting.
