Building heritage, a resource to protect

The Plan considers the existing built heritage as a resource to be protected, given that conservation and valorisation of the signs left by the historic presence of man in the Park area is a way of passing on the history and local culture, ways of life, social and production organisation, man’s relationship with the environment and traditions.
Historic settlements have been identified as of cultural interest; religious buildings, villas and stately homes and buildings associated with roads (hospices, stage posts, inns) as of historical-architectural interest; rural settlements or structures associated with forestry and farming as of historical-environmental heritage and industrial archaeology as of historical-testimonial interest.
The Plan also includes military structures, boundary markers and archaeological remains.
