Venezuela – Coro and its Port

Santa Ana de Coro is in the Engandered World Heritage Sites list since 2005 and Unesco recognized Venezuela’s efforts in preserving it.

The Venezuelan Government and Unesco’s World Heritage Center have partnered in a joint effort to preserve the old town of Santa Ana de Coro and its Port of La Vela. The project has the goal of removing the site from the endangered world heritage sites list.

“With great pleasure, I inform that the World Heritage Center has favorably accepted your request for assistance to contribute to the enforcement of corrective measures required by the committee,” a letter by signed Mechtild Rossler, Director of Heritage Division & Director of the World Heritage Centre, said.

According to the letter, removing Santa Ana de Coro and its Port of La Vela from the endangered list is one of Unesco’s priorities in Latin America and the Caribbean.

To do so, Unesco will send two technical advising missions and hand over US $30,000 to the Venezuelan government.
