MEXICO CITY.- The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) reports that Baja California cultural heritage presents no damage provoked by the earthquake of April 4th 2010.

Baja California INAH Center informed that after several inspections conducted at main cultural centers and archaeological sites guarded by INAH, no affectations were reported.

Daniel Aguilar Hernandez, administrator of the aforementioned center, pointed out that epicenter of the quake is located 18 kilometers away from Mexicali, where there are no historical buildings. El Vallecito is the nearest archaeological center but no damage was registered.

“Monday and Tuesday, when the site is closed, we conducted inspection and confirmed that rock paintings found there suffered no harm”, he declared.

Aguilar Hernandez mentioned that two historical buildings in Ensenada, Ex Aduana Maritima (Former Maritime Customs) and Ex Cuartel de la Compañia Fija (Former military headquarters), to present seat of Baja California Regional Museum, were also inspected and found without damage.

Missionary vestiges located to the north of Ensenada were not affected. “We remain in alert state due to replicas” he concluded.
