A national photo exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention on World Cultural and Natural Heritage is being displayed at the Provincial Museum of the south-central city of Cienfuegos, as part of its tour of several Cuban towns.
The director of the Office of Monuments and Historic Sites in Cienfuegos, Zenia Jauregui said that the exhibit includes images of Cuban areas declared World Heritage by the UN Education, Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO).
The exhibit has drawn the local people who come to admire the pictures at the local museum, as part of many activities scheduled for the summer season. Regla Abreu, a Cienfuegos citizen, said she was really impressed at the high quality and beauty of the images.
The exhibit is composed of 20 works by Cuban photographers Nils Navarro and Julio Larramendi, said Abreu who explained that the photos depict heritage sites like the Old Section of Havana, the Alejandro de Humbolt National Park, which expands through eastern Holguin and Guantanamo provinces; the Valle de los Ingenios (the Sugar Mills Valley), in central Sancti Spiritus; the San Pedro de la Roca Morro Castle, in Santiago de Cuba, among others.
The photo exhibit was inaugurated April 18 at Havana’s Riviera Hotel and later, it was taken to the Vinales Valley in western Pinar del Rio province. After Cienfuegos the works will be displayed in central Santa Clara city.
