more deteriorated than expected and a year of work to preserve it

The Puerta de Alcalá already has its diagnosis. And the main conclusion is that this emblematic monument of the capital requires “immediate intervention” to preserve it. Work that will be spread over a year, which should begin within a month and for which an investment of just under three million euros will be necessary.

“This work told us that although the door is structurally sound, it requires immediate intervention for its conversation. The board He will have a special emergency contract tomorrow”, said the delegate for Culture, Tourism and Sports, Andrea Levy.

As you remember this morning Luis Lafuente, general director of heritage of the town hall, the last great performance took place 30 years ago, in 1992. “Since the beginning of the legislature, we were aware of the need for a detailed study and then taking the corresponding decisions. It was a priority.”

As studies have revealed, the Puerta de Alcalá is in a “situation of greater deterioration than expected”. Therefore, the dismantling of the current scaffolding located on the monument is postponed, “since it is an element that acts in a double way, ensuring both the safety and the protection of the monument itself”.
