The Seville City Council proposes to the central government to close the Plaza de España and charge an entrance fee to tourists

SEVILLA, 25 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The City Council of Seville will propose to the General Directorate of State Heritage, dependent on the Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations of María Jesús Montero, a collaboration agreement with which to create a "management unit" for the maintenance and conservation of the Plaza of Spain which would mean, among other measures, closing the monumental complex by Aníbal González for the 1929 Exhibition and charging tourists an entrance fee.

Those registered in Seville and those born in the capital and the province would be exempt from paying. This is stated in the agreement advanced by ABC and confirmed by municipal sources to the media. The City Council, owner of the space in the square between the provincial benches and the balustrade, proposes creating a tourist-cultural itinerary through the interior of the Plaza de España subject to "a non-deterrent fee supported by a comparative study" that, In his opinion, "it would have great acceptance and a significant capacity to generate income."

These incomes, continues the agreement advanced by ABC, would be distributed between the State and the City Council by 25% and 75%, respectively. In the Plaza de España there are offices and administrative services that citizens use. For them, the City Council ensures that access is guaranteed, just as horse carriages will be able to enter the space.

The government of 'popular' José Luis Sanz is committed to a phased implementation. In addition to the exploitation of open space, the project plans to use the parts of the building that do not currently have it or only sporadic use. In this last point, the City Council's plan involves creating two new exhibition spaces dedicated to the 1929 Exhibition.
