The WMF announced that the sum, donated by American Express, will go towards five historic sites around the world, one being the 15 convents in Sevilla, many of which have struggled with maintenance costs.

Through the fund, an area of the 14th-century Santa Ines convent will be made accessible to the public, together with a guidebook showcasing the historic significance of the convents, built between the 13th and 17th centuries.
