Illas Cíes

The Xunta de Galicia has signed an agreement worth 80 thousand euros with the three Galician universities for the preparation of the application form for the Cíes Islands-National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia to World Heritage, a basic technical element to continue the process, a form that “has to have different systematic evaluations made by experts with scientific criteria and rigor”, explained the president of the Xunta who will emphasize that it will analyze aspects such as “the diagnosis of the components of the environment, biodiversity and geodiversity, its delimitation, territorial valuation and the analysis of management rules that affect the space and the conservation of natural heritage assets.

In 2017, the Ministry of Culture included the candidature in the National Indicative List to be sent to UNESCO, a list that was updated and published by the entity in February 2018. The next step was for the candidature to remain on the tentative list for one year, so that after that period, the Galician Government resumes the activity by commissioning the candidature form.
