Arquiteturas da Alma - Proposta de Valorização da Arquitetura e Paisagem Eremítica no Alentejo dos séculos XII-XVI
José Luís Saldanha
We intend to study the architectural-landscape system associated with the hermitages in the Alentejo between the Christian reconquest in the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, when institutionalizing the hermit movement. The proposal is based on the critical interpretation of each element, to identify the spatial set defined by them, based on the common and unique characteristics of each unit, starting from the hypothesis that will constitute a spatial and culturally coherent series. The research aims at identifying the hermitages and their characteristics, the definition and interpretation of the meaning of the cultural landscape and the formulation of proposals for the valorisation of the complexes.
