Abstract (in English)

Circumstances indicated that the Seminario Conciliar Building, a huge privately-owned historic building in the San Juan of Puerto Rico Historic Zone, was doamed to an uncertain future -leading to a complete and pervasive deterioration. This notable building presented extremely important historic and architectural characteristics. It sprawled over almost a complete city block within the historic zone, facing the justly-famous "museum street" Calle del Cristc. It also faced, however, two insidious foes: lack of money and lack of motivation on the part of its owners to so something about its future.
