Quito has started work with UNESCO to preserve and position the Convent of San Francisco as a religious, cultural and emblematic attraction of the city for locals and visitors alike.

The program will initially focus on the preservation of the convent’s architecture as well as sustainable tourism practices. In addition, a new audio guide with 21 stories of the convent has been created in both English and Spanish. In 2015, additional work will be done in the conservation and adaptation of new spaces of the convent, as well as exposure of the Franciscan craft brewery.
