Committee Decisions

CONF 202 21B.69

Old City of Salamanca (Spain)

The World Heritage Committee,

1. Takes note of the ICOMOS mission report indicating that the auditorium project in the Old City of Salamanca is likely to greatly alter the immediate vicinity of several historic monuments in the centre of which its construction is foreseen and could also alter the outstanding values for which the site was inscribed on the World Heritage List;

2. Recommends that the State Party seek another location for this project, the utility of which is not disputed;

3. Recommends, with regard to the management of the World Heritage site, that the State Party avoid making minor modifications to the present safeguarding plan and elaborate a new adapted and sustainable management plan.
