Open Doors to Celebrate the World Heritage Day

On November 16 and 17 will be held doors open days to celebrate the World Heritage Day. There will be free tours of the Tower of Santa Maria, the Borough of Santiuste, Complutum or House of Hippolytus, among others.

Last year 2012 was held for the first time the International World Heritage Day, which commemorates the day November 16, 1972 in Paris when the Convention of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage was signed.

Alcalá de Henares is added back to this event designed to help bringing citizens to the knowledge of the cultural and natural wealth of goods included in the list of World Heritage of UNESCO.

This celebration serves to raise public awareness, about the common duty to protect these exceptional assets to bequeath to future generations, and that this heritage, for their outstanding universal value is global, meaning that is not unique to a country or nation, but these goods have a fundamental value for the whole of humanity.

Thus, and to celebrate the International Day of the World Heritage, the City of Alcalá de Henares, through the Department of Heritage and Tourism, offers two Open Doors Days to buildings and monuments in the Historical Heritage Network, which can be visited for free November 16 and 17.
