Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre, ICOMOS and ICCROM

The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies note that there are no other current conservation issues, which may have an impact on the property’s Outstanding Universal Value (OUV), and that the state of conservation of the property is being adequately addressed.

The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies are of the view that the Committee’s recommendations are being addressed continuously by the State Party and no further reporting is required in the short term. The State Party is encouraged to continue with the implementation of the measures requested by the Committee and with those envisaged in the Management Plan, notably the implementation of a Steering Committee, involving the offices and stakeholders that worked to develop the management and Master Plans, in order to ensure an appropriate state of conservation and to prevent threats from affecting its OUV.
