"With the return to normality, the necessary work must move quickly, so that by the end of the year the supportive operations within the monument complex have been completed, as well as the cleaning of the slopes and the earthworks for the promotion of the southeastern part of the marble enclosure – the best-preserved section of it – and restoring the shape of the hill," she said.
