This is the winner of a Diploma
This study comprises an interdisciplinary study of documents and diagnosis of the walls, a plan for the preservation and restoration of the walls, and a plan for the protection of the wall and its surroundings as part of the planning of Ibiza’s historical assets.
This study, with a strong emphasis on the importance of historical documents and technical understanding of the fortification models, could be considered a methodological example for other fortifications from the same era with documentary sources in Spanish archives. It has already been presented as a model in the Americas, where fortifications built by Europeans are among their most treasured heritage assets.
“For a multidisciplinary approach towards documentation and diagnosis, as well as practical proposals for rehabilitation that enhance the value of cultural heritage for the local community.”
