Palma.—Palma City Council yesterday unanimously voted in favour of putting the capital forward to be declared a UNESCO world heritage site.
Under the slogan “Palma, a cultural landscape by the se”, the Councillor for Culture and Sport, Fernando Gilet said that it would be an important recognition for the capital and a necessary one considering how the local authority wants to transform Palma and establish it as one of the most popular city breaks destinations in Europe.
Gilet explained that the firs step is to have Palma included on the list of Spanish destinations also vying for similar recognition, but, he added, that this is a “historic moment” for the city “and we are obviously pleased that all the councillors on both sides of the chamber are in favour of such a move”.
