International contest for San Francisco Ruins
Maribel Villalona, director of the Colonial City renewal project, has announced that works are under way for issuing a tender for selecting the company that will design a concept for turning the San Francisco Ruins into a conservation model and engine for the Colonial City's economic development, as reported in Diario Libre. At present, the ruins are visited by hundreds of music lovers every Sunday for the Bonye sunset concert. Architect Carlos Clemente San Roman, who is preparing the tender, says that the architectural intervention is urgently needed because the important ruin is deteriorating fast. The participants will receive an inventory of the present conditions of the first Jesuit monastery in the Americas.
Villalona says that they hope to attract world famous companies to bid in the tender and that the completed work will be considered among the world's leading cultural restoration projects. She predicted that the completed work would be an anchor for works that will follow in the Colonial City.
Clemente said that the plan is to carry out restoration work that will be key to the city in the same way as the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
Clemente observed that the ruins are closed all week long and could be put to better use. He said that during the restoration the works could become an attraction in themselves, in the same way as the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
Tourism increasing in the southwest
According to the vice president of the Barahona Tourist Cluster and board member of the Dominican Republic Hotels and Tourism Association (Asonahores), Polibio Schiffino, occupancy has improved in hotels in Barahona and the surrounding areas.
He said that in response to the demand, 200 more hotel rooms would be available in the coming year with the reopening of the former Bahoruco Beach Resort, the renovation of government-owned Guarocuya Hotel and the addition of rooms to several existing hotels along the Barahona coastline.
Schiffino said that hotel occupancy had increased by more than 30% over previous years with the growth being equally divided between foreigners and Dominicans.
Southwest to fly to Punta Cana
Southwest Airlines is taking bookings from passengers for its daily flights from Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington and Chicago Midway that are scheduled to start on 2 November 2014. Punta Cana will also be receiving year-round Saturday flights from Houston when United Airlines starts its direct flights on 20 December.
