Interest in heritage tourism
THERE HAS BEEN an increase in the interest of visitors to the island since Barbados received its UNESCO designation as a World Heritage site.
Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley made the revelation after participating in the official ground-breaking ceremony of the historic Garrison tunnels on the grounds of George Washington House yesterday.
The minister later made the approximately 200-foot trek through the almost 200-year-old tunnel today before later speaking to reporters at a press conference.
Lashley urged more members of the private sector to come on board with projects like these. (HLE)
