Intangible values of landscape

Place: Galicia

This research project for Europarc Spain proposes a methodology for the incorporation of the notion of intangible value in the delimitation and management of natural protected parks. To this end I proposed case studies and tests to identify and evaluate, with scientific objectivity, the intangible elements of the landscape. The results were grouped into three categories of intangible values: well-being and tranquility, cultural heritage and identity and aesthetic value.

These findings were put into experimental testing in a specific Galician location in order to know which findings could be applied and which could not. Intangible maps were drawn to reach conclusions and reflect our final interpretation.
