Knowing the architectural heritage through graphic survey: the castle of Ademuz

Irene De La Torre Fornes, Javier Cortina Maruenda, David Marcos González


The castle of Ademuz constitutes a relevant heritage value of this spanish town and of the Rincón de Ademuz municipal district and is a key element to understand the configuration of the village and its importance as a defensive town throughout history. However, the lack of documents about the castle and its lamentable condition make it a largely unknown monument. Actions are currently implemented to reverse this alarming situation and the drafting of the Master Plan of the Castle of Ademuz has been the first step to raise awareness about its recovery and enhancement. The Master Plan has summarized the existing documentary information about the castle and its legal and urban situation as a step prior to its constructive and formal analysis. The graphic survey carried out in the drafting of the Master Plan constitutes an unpublished knowledge contribution on this property, which has allowed us to establish hypotheses about its compositional traces and to guide the lines of action for its recovery.
This unprecedented graphic survey will also allow defining each of the lines of action of the Master Plan, from the structural consolidation of the remains of the castle to the conditioning of the spaces that surround it, as well as its cultural dissemination through the new digital technologies linked to virtual reality and augmented reality, among others. The objective is to enhance this architectural heritage through its knowledge and dissemination, so that this legacy is preserved for future generations.
