Nominate a Site to the 2014 World Monuments Watch!
World Monuments Watch and Enhanced Public Access
Through the Watch, WMF has collaborated with national authorities and other organizations to develop, promote, and re-envision the presentation of heritage sites. The conservation of the Temple of Hercules (1996 Watch) and the Temple of Portunus (2006 Watch) in Rome's Forum Boarium led to a reassessment of the significance and interpretation of this ancient commercial area. At the ruins of the Jesuit mission complex of San Ignacio Miní (1996 Watch) in Argentina, WMF helped create a new permanent exhibit for the existing site interpretation center. And on Easter Island, WMF helped develop a conservation and interpretation program that resulted in the construction of a new visitor center near the Orongo ceremonial village (1996, 2000 Watch). The visitor center provides an introduction to Rapa Nui National Park and helps to monitor and manage visitation to the fragile site.
