Abstract (in English)

This project, promoted by the Fundación Caja Madrid and the Regional Government of Castilla and León, emphasizes the need to disseminate and transmit the importance of guaranteeing the understanding, preservation and restoration of cultural heritage. In the present case this applies to this church façade, a 15th century masterpiece. To this end, while the restoration project is being carried out the public enjoys the unique opportunity of contemplating the beauty of this sculptured façade from a 30m-high lift platform. Visitors can thus follow and observe the real time restoration process, understand conservation problems, the techniques used, the time required for this kind of activity and the difficulties that are being encountered during the work that will permit the recovery and preservation of this masterpiece for future generations.
