Rehabilitation of the Cloister of the Convent of Santo Antón de Herbón.

Project description

The Cloister of the Convent of Santo Antón de Herbón has been rehabilitated to recover its splendor through high-value-added materials such as chestnut wood. Due to its durability, minimal variation in response to humidity changes, as well as its resistance, beauty, and finish.

Preserving cultural heritage is essential; it represents the roots that sustain humanity, defines the identity of a community, its history, social cohesion, and drives the sustainable development of the environment. The opportunity it offers is majestic for keeping cultural diversity alive. The contribution of the materials used for the rehabilitation of spaces is crucial to preserve cultural heritage with rigor and authenticity of the values projected by each place. The use of chestnut wood in the beams of this reconstruction elevates the importance of the cloister, preserves its historical essence, and enhances the beauty of the surroundings.
