ICOMOS International invites you to read and share the Statement of Concern by ICOMOS Lebanon regarding the Commemorative steles of Nahr el-Kalb, Mount Lebanon:
The Palacio Bellas Artes was built in 1914 in San Sebastian, Spain. It is one of the earliest extant examples of a purpose-built movie palace left in the Basque Country and in all of Spain. Its rich architectural, cultural and social history are a vital part of the history of San Sebastian which was acknowledged by its being listed as Grade I cultural heritage in the Master Plan of San Sebastian in 1995. It was also declared as an "Inventor Cultural Property" with a Monument category by the Basque Government by an Order on March 4, 2015 (BOPV of March 6). This should have been enough to protect the building. Unfortunately, both the physical and political conditions surrounding this landmark have changed in recent years and the building is now severely threatened.
