Restoration works in Havana’s Historic Heart, declared World Heritage, is supported by European and Latin American institutions.

Experts from the Havana City Historian’s Office said that various Spanish and Italian regions, as well as Latin American institutions, have contributed to the restoration works in the Cuban capital.

The program includes the restoration of the Santo Domingo Convent, which was the former university venue. Works are scheduled for completion in the second semester of 2005.

Other works include completion of the Saratoga Hotel, on the Prado Promenade, and reconstruction of the Cueto Hotel.

The Havana City Historian’s Office expanded its project to Chinatown, where Chinese identity is preserved through community programs and Chinese language classes on the local station Habana Radio.

Outside the boundaries of Old Havana, the Havana City Historian’s Office restores public monuments and more complex structures, like the Seawall.

    I have seen some of the work that is being done in Habana Vieja and it certainly is great work. The City Historian’ Office deserves lots of credit for undertaking such a worthwhile project.

    Yes, first class and professional work. And, how much more and how much further could it all have gone without the destructive US Bloqueo?
