Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

The Puerto Rico SHPO invited Patricia O’Donnell for a workshop on the way forward for Viejo San Juan World Heritage and National Historic Landmark properties in August 2012. Land and water tours of the World Heritage Sites sparked broad dialogue of the defensive history of the old city and the integrity of remaining historic features.

Interest in managing the historic city as a Historic Urban Landscapes aligned to the UNESCO Recommendation was broadened through a presentation on UNESCO HUL and its potential application to Viejo San Juan. A lively open discussion followed the presentation.
