'Gallaecia Petrea' constitutes a journey through the presence of stone in Galician culture, from the earliest times down to the present day; from the moment it became the basic element that shaped the landscape to its more recent uses in forms of cultural expression. It provides an insight into the relationships between territory and stone, generating a debate on one of the hallmarks of Galician culture, the Galician landscape and the Galician way of life, addressing the use of stone as both building material and artistic medium, explaining not only the reasons why it is used, but also the techniques used to work it and the various aesthetic languages employed. It features some of the most significant examples of such uses, both utilitarian or artistic, in varying kinds of stone, yet stems from a geological analysis of the territory to explain the choice of a specific material in each case.

Gallaecia Petrea brings together, for the first time ever, the most significant stonework produced in Gallaecia, namely modern-day Galicia, Northern Portugal and adjoining areas of Asturias: the territory bounded by the River Duero to the South and the River Navia to the East.... read more

[Celebrations]

The Spanish Group of World Heritage Cities celebrates today the 40th Anniversary of UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention under the theme "World Heritage and sustainable development: the role of local communities".

Celebrate it with us!

In 1960 an extraordinary event focussed the attention of the international community on protecting a historic monument: when the Abu Simbel temple was threatened by the construction of a dam on the Nile, 50 countries worked together to transfer it to an area safe from flooding.

Looking back, this was the first step towards the international community considering that some of the planet’s treasures are of interest to all men and beginning to think of ways of protecting them.

Twelve years later, on November 16, 1972, UNESCO approved the World Heritage Convention, which is aimed at protecting cultural and natural sites considered of exceptional universal value.
    
Today, the Convention has been adopted by 190 countries and the World Heritage List includes 962 sites located in 157 countries.
