Cochabamba, May 26, 2023 (ABI).- Revitalized and attractive, this Friday the park on the Hill of San Sebastián was opened to the public, where the monument to the Heroines of the Crown is located, in the city of Cochabamba. The population will be able to enjoy augmented reality murals, a bike path and a biological corridor, among other new attractions.
At the reopening, the Ministers of Development Planning, Sergio Cusicanqui, and of Cultures, Sabina Orellana, assembly members, local authorities and representatives of social organizations and the general public toured the Hill and the refurbished spaces.
“We are opening the doors of the Cerro de San Sebastián de la Coronilla, a national cultural historical heritage and also a pride of Cochabambinos,” Cusicanqui highlighted.
Orellana affirmed that the work is delivered in homage to the courageous women who faced the royalist army in 1812, and to all the Bolivian mothers, who celebrate their day tomorrow.
“This work is a tribute to Mother’s Day, it is a heritage that must be cared for and valued, and tomorrow the population will enjoy walks on the hill,” he explained.
The Preservation and Revitalization of the San Sebastián La Coronilla Hill represented an investment of Bs 31 million, financed by the national government.
