Paisaia bizia. The construction of landscapes in Biscay.




“’Landscape’ means an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors”.

European Landscape Convention (Florence 2000)


In 2017, the central theme of European Heritage Days is the construction of our landscapes. Natural, economic, social and cultural factors have intervened in the formation of our landscapes over time, processes of great complexity, which require a territorial perspective to comprehend them. 

The landscapes we see today are not only the stage of our history and the material evidence of past events. They are also active, dynamic subjects in constant transformation, in which the physical framework gives cohesion to tangible and intangible cultural manifestations. In short, they represent the greater unity of our heritage and help us to understand it in its territorial context, but also in its temporal development. 

This year, we are inviting you to try a new approach. An inclusive way of seeing and understanding in terms of sustainability, in order to understand natural and cultural heritage globally and thus demand its knowledge and preservation. Because heritage and landscape help us to learn about the past but also, above all, to understand the present and imagine the future.
