Luanda - The deputy director of the National Institute for Cultural Heritage, Manuel Caboco, called on Wednesday for the need to preserve and protect the rich and diverse cultural legacy of Angola.

Emanuel Caboco, who was speaking during a seminar on the trajectory of cultural preservation in Angola, as part of the World Day of African Heritage, said it is necessary to continue to preserve, restore, rehabilitate and, above all, disseminate it, so that everyone knows the cultural wealth.

"We are calling attention for the monuments, because they transmit the uses, customs and habits of the Angolan people, since they deserve to be studied, investigated and expanded," the official said.

Angola has more than 265 classified monuments and sites and more than 2,000 inventoried areas, many in an advanced state of degradation.

Luanda is among the other provinces of the country, owner of a vast cultural and natural heritage that constitutes the most eloquent testimony of the historical path of activity and sensitivity of the Angolan people in different periods and historical situations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May 5 was established in 2015 by UNESCO as World Day of African Heritage with the aim to draw attention to the cultural and natural richness of the African continent.
