“This is enunciative, not limiting; all that remains in the collaboration with the municipal authority to improve the conditions of the city and port of Mazatlan, “he said.

He mentioned that one of the most important projects is the rescue of the Municipal Historic Archive of Mazatlan, since there is the complete edition of the newspaper El Correo de la Tarde -of 1897-, and original minutes of the first town councils.

Ríos Avendaño stressed that the INAH has a Unique System of Public Registry of Monuments and Archaeological and Historical Zones, which is like the Public Registry of Property, where anyone can go to see who is the owner of such property, and it is public.

As for the Ángela Peralta Pantheon, the delegate said that in the building there is a huge amount of funerary monuments of characters from the history of Mazatlan, which will be the object of restoration and the creation of a museography in the same pantheon, from now on.

“Have the routes according to the story, the characters that are buried there. He (the Chemist Benítez) raised the possibility of doing the QR, so you scan with the cell phone and all the historical information comes out. “

On the economic resources for the projects and the start of these, the INAH delegate commented that it would not be bad to mention a number, but it would also be irresponsible, since the project is not yet there.

“Like any process of remodeling, or restoration in this case, if it is historical, it takes a process. We must do the lifting of the current state (…) Once authorized by INAH, we bring the restorers and start the restoration process, how much it will cost, depends on the damage, “he concluded.
