Cidade Velha as World Heritage is a “noble and simple” contribution to the history of men – PR

Praia, Jun 27 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic considered the elevation of Cidade Velha as World Heritage a “noble and simple” contribution to the history of men, to be “admired and visited” by people from other places.

Jorge Carlos Fonseca made this point in his speech at the opening session to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the elevation Cidade Velha to World Heritage and the official opening of the 2nd edition of the program “A journey through the history”.

The Head of State declared that the cradle of each nation is like the “most precious alveolus” of a whole body, of the whole structure, of its organism, created and developed over time.

He went on to explain that, after the first stands and settlements, the islands grew, internally, “they gained life and singular movement”, they began to “breathe by their own means”, initiating “the pulsation of the daily life of this land-body.”
