BIC Monastery of San Pedro de Eslonza

BIC Monastery of San Pedro de Eslonza

The intervention carried out at the Monastery of San Pedro de Eslonza, declared a Cultural Heritage Site with the category of Monument in 1931, consisted of archaeological prospection of the ruins and their consolidation and rehabilitation for tourist visits. The project was designed employing the criteria of technical, economic and social sustainability, and with the goals of ensuring landscape integration, environmental conservation and tourist safety. Given the potential of cultural heritage to revitalise a depressed region at risk of depopulation and social exclusion, various public administrations have funded the project within a broader programme targeting historical buildings located on the Way of Saint James pilgrimage route. Rehabilitation for tourist visits included restoration of the original layout of the monastery, installation of timber supports in archways, restoration of the original floor level with gravel to enable circulation and erection of signposting that respects the monument.
