The project, for which the general director of Cultural Heritage had announced around 3 million euros, has seen its allocation reduced to around 800,000 euros for maintenance works

The deputy of
Canarian Nationalist Group, Juan Manuel García Ramos, today warned the Minister of Culture that he will monitor the Government's commitment to the
works of the Palace of Nava, parked for many years, "which could house the Pedro González Museum".

The project, for which the general director of Cultural Heritage had announced some 3 million euros, has seen its departure reduced to a few
800.000 euros, for maintenance works.

Given the deputy's complaint, from Education and Culture they guarantee that by 2023 a game of
one million euros of the State Government to which the Ministry undertakes to complement with specific items.

Between 2016 and 2019 it was agreed, with a high degree of consensus between the responsible administrations and with competences in matters of historical heritage (Government of the Canary Islands, as owner of the property, the Cabildo de Tenerife and the City Council of La Laguna), undertake a work of greater scope that would put into use at least the first bay of the Palacio de Nava as
interpretation center of the historical complex, compatible with exhibition uses, seminars and congresses.

The truth is that "the regional Executive has unilaterally modified the project and has given up a global action and immediate use of the property," said García Ramos.

"This type of situation demonstrates, once again, the absence of political leadership, the lack of strategy, and the scant dedication of the municipal and regional governments to maintaining the prestige of a historic city, a World Heritage Site and what it represents" , he concluded.
