Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2004
The Monastery of Hilandar, part of the World Heritage property of Mount Athos, has recently been seriously damaged by an accidental fire. The Director of the World Heritage Centre, in a letter of 11 March 2004 addressed to the Greek Delegation, expressed his solidarity with Greece and his concern about the state of conservation of the property, and requested the authorities to provide updated information on the current state of conservation of the site, and on the eventual measures that have been taken to mitigate the threats.
Furthermore, by letter of 28 August 2003, the World Heritage Centre requested the State Party to provide information on the restoration works that are being carried out in the World Heritage property and on the eventual preparation of an overall management plan, which includes the natural values of this mixed site.
