Bridgetown and its Garrison were named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012.
Tourism Minister Richard Sealy said, “We have this tremendous asset — Historic Bridgetown and Its Garrison — and the question is, how do we get more people to come and see it? The Spaniards and Italians understand that well because they have several sites on the list.”
According to Mr. Sealy, heritage tourism is a “key area” of cooperation with Spain.
Barbados has been unable to draw tourists from Spain; however, the Minister is quite optimistic that the travel from Spain to Barbados would improve.
