Funerary architecture often presents a series of specificities that makes it necessary to combine different techniques for its adequate graphic restitution. These conditioning factors are usually present both in the exterior, such as nearby trees and metalwork elements, and in the interior, due to the arrangement of small objects and furniture as well as poor lighting in the rooms.
This paper focuses on the methodology followed for the graphic restitution of the Pedreño y Deu family pantheon in the main cemetery of Cartagena (Spain). The pantheon, built in 1875, consists of a circular chapel on the ground floor and a crypt below ground level. At the start of the survey, the building, protected by municipal planning, was in a state of advanced deterioration.
The techniques used for the survey of each part will be described, as well as the procedure followed to assemble them into a single model. In this work, we have been able to verify that hybridization in survey techniques is one of the best options to represent architectural heritage in case studies where there are situations of very different natures.
