Abstract (in English)

An outline of the importance of appropriate curtilages for monuments and the reasons for the need to protect such curtilages for a number of reasons including visual ones. The problems being faced today with intrusive elements around a monument -whether tall buildings in urban areas or uncontrolled sprawl in the country side. The need to accept that in some urban areas the curtilage has already been compromised and that the best that can be achieved is to stabilize that position.
