Study of the Territorial and Landscape Integration of the Aqueduct of Segovia
The Roman Aqueduct of Segovia was placed on the 2006 World Monuments Watch to call attention to considerable conservation needs of the structure and the desirability to improve documentation of the structure and develop a comprehensive management plan to protect the site in the future, from its source at the Frío River to the hydraulic pipes under the City of Segovia. Through the generosity of American Express, WMF was able to engage Rafael Mata Olmo and a team of cultural landscape experts from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) to develop a "Study of the Territorial and Landscape Integration of the Aqueduct of Segovia." The goal of the study was to characterize and evaluate the Aqueduct’s integration into the territory from its source at the mountain springs all the way into the town of Segovia. The study summarized in this report has helped address the dangers that threaten the Aqueduct of Segovia and understand the monument as a whole and from a territorial and landscape perspective.
