Carnival’s eyes on Cultural Heritage

THE annual Santa Cruz Carnival, which attracts hoards of visitors from all over the world, could become a national treasure.



The Culture Ministry has this week initiated proceedings for the spectacular fiesta – second in the world to the Rio festival only – to become part of the nation’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.



And Santa Cruz Council will next year present arguments to incorporate the Carnival on merit, popularity and uniqueness.
