The minister of cultural heritage, tourism and handicrafts has approved a plan to renovate the Portuguese castle on the Hormuz Island in southern Iran.

During a visit to the Portuguese Castle of Hormuz Island, Ali Asghar Mounesan highlighted the significance of conducting archaeological research on the castle and allocated a special budget for the restoration of the monument.

“This monument is one of the tourist attractions of Hormuz Island and the ministry attaches great significance to it,” he underlined.  
Inviting investors and tourists to come to Hormuz Island, Mounesan said due to the high competition for investment projects, making investment even on one metre of the island will be very difficult over the next few years.

He further continued that Hormuz Island is getting a reputation and will become one of the tourism hubs in the future, particularly in the field of maritime tourism.
“Given the closeness of Hormuz Island to Bandar Abbas, Qeshm Island and Larak Island, a unique seafront route for tourists can be set up,” he said.

Mounesan also met with artisans and artists on the island's handicrafts market during his visit and discussed their problems.

The minister of cultural heritage, tourism and handicrafts also visited the process of implementing the project of the Hormuz Ecotourism Residence on the island.
