The High Commissioner for Marca España has signed an agreement with the Group of UNESCO World Heritage Cities in Spain (GCPHE) to give publicity to the Spanish cities included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The agreement is valid for three years and can be extended. It was signed by the High Commissioner for Marca España, Carlos Espinosa de los Monteros, and the President of GCPHE and Mayor of Córdoba, Isabel Ambrosio Palos, at a meeting held at Córdoba Town Hall

At the meeting, Carlos Espinosa de los Monteros highlighted the importance of this agreement for Marca España. ‘The 15 World Heritage Cities in Spain are major symbols of our country’s history, culture and art. Their heritage is essential to promote our nation brand,’ said the High Commissioner.

Ms Ambrosio said the agreement meant cooperation between ‘two of the most prestigious brands from our country in order to make the Spanish heritage more widely known’.

Under the agreement, Marca España and GCPHE will establish a framework for cooperation to carry out activities promoting the cultural heritage in the 15 Spanish cities included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, ‘boosting in particular their international presence as part of Marca España and as ambassadors of our culture and heritage around the world.’
