Description & Pictures

Within the PAHIS plan for dissemination of historical heritage of Castilla y León, and in collaboration with Romanesque Zamora we have developed these educational activities on the Romanesque Art in the premises of the Rey Alfonso Henriquez Foundation.

The sessions included during the year also lengthened during summers through exchanges with the school “Lander Road” of the English town of Sefton, and as many students and 3 teachers from the school La Candelaria de Zamora. The workshop is part of Comenius exchange program, developed by the CRIE (Centro Rural Educational Innovation) of Zamora.

In all cases the teaching focuses on the Romanesque construction, mason marks, building walls and the highlight activity: the construction of the Romanesque facade of the church of Santiago del Burgo whose realization can be seen in the pictures and video.
