Decision Adopted: 17 COM X

Trinidad and the Valley de los Ingenios (Cuba)

It was reported that the town of Trinidad is generally well conserved, although shortage of specific building materials caused some problems. It is advisable to plan restoration of archaeological and architectural sites within a global plan, which would also take into account tourism development as well as proposed hydraulic projects.
