UNESCO centre to open in Lagos

Lagos is to have a UNESCO centre in the city.

The protocol with the UNESCO National Commission was signed by the Lagos Mayor Júlio Barroso and the UNESCO Ambassador Fernando Andresen Guimarães (pictured left and right respectively). 

Júlio Barroso said:  “It is a great honour that Lagos has been chosen for the centre. Lagos has a great historic heritage and we want people to know more about it.  Working in partnership with UNESCO is the best way to achieve this.”

The UNESCO centre at Edifício da Janela Manuelina in Lagos will be dedicated to the historical and cultural links between Portugal and the world in the past and present days.
