Current conservation issues
The Bureau, at its twenty-second session requested the Spanish authorities to submit by 15 September 1998 a report on the plans for the hill and fortress of Burgos, which it considered as one of the main elements of the cultural landscape of Burgos. This request was transmitted to the Permanent Delegation of Spain on 16 July 1998.
The Observer of Spain informed the Bureau that a Spanish expert might be present at the Committee session.
The Bureau, therefore, decided to refer the examination of the state of conservation of Burgos Cathedral to the Committee.
