The Provincial Heritage Commission, in the session held this Friday under the chairmanship of the Territorial Delegate for Tourism, Culture and Sport, Minerva Salas, reported a total of 13 files of interest for the conservation of cultural heritage and artistic, of which 6 correspond to Seville and 7 to the province, to Aznalcázar, Écija, Lebrija, Marchena, Peñaflor and two to Utrera.

In this Friday’s session, it is worth highlighting various favorable reports corresponding to many other intervention projects proposed by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Development and Spatial Planning of the Junta de Andalucía in different historical spaces of the province of Seville.

Thus, the Heritage Commission reported favorably on various interventions in the historic walls of Aznalcázar, Écija and in those of the Castle of Utrera, in particular the projects of specific archaeological activity of paramental study saw their approval : extraction of wall samples for the characterization and diagnosis of the mentioned walls. These are works financed by funds from the Department of Infrastructure, Development and Spatial Planning of the Junta de Andalucía, within the framework of the research project “Diagnosis and Cataloging of Andalusian Architectural Heritage”.

In Aznalcázar, where the walled area extended for more than 6.7 km, the objective is to make a sample on the canvas of Miguel de Cervantes Street, a canvas of a wall factory that retains seven rows of 0 .90 meters and 6 meters long. Heights. In Écija there are sections of the urban wall scattered throughout the city and the Alcazar, the sampling area will be on the canvas of the wall in Calle Estepa, accessed through an open window in the wall through which the wall interior can be seen from The Canvas. And as for the enclosure of the castle of Utrera, which dates from the fourteenth century, the sampling area will be the canvas of the south-eastern side of the castle, on the inner and outer face, and in the lower part of the quadrangular tower located at the south summit of the Château.

The Heritage Commission considers that from a technical point of view, the objectives and methodological approaches proposed in this project are adequate and in line with the purposes that justify the intervention, also respecting the requirements established in terms of methodology and content in the regulations of Archaeological activities, approved by Decree 168/2003 of June 17.

archaeological activity
Por otro lado, en Lebrija, igualmente Patrimonio ha informado favorably a project of archaeological activity by part of the Consejería de Infraestructura, Fomento y Ordenación del Territorio de la Junta de Andalucía en el Castillo de Lebrija, Bien de Interés Cultural propiedad del Ayuntamiento de la locality. And all this as a preventive activity to the planned basic and execution project that finalizes the council for the regeneration of urban public space called “Between the walls: recovery of the public space of the eastern esplanade of the Lebrija Castle hill”. The Commission considers that, from a technical point of view, the objectives and methodological approaches proposed in this project are adequate and in line with the purposes that justify the intervention, also fulfilling the requirements established in terms of methodology and content in the regulation of activities archaeological.

Finally, the project presented to intervene in the Royal Pavilion of the Plaza de América in the Sevillian capital stands out. Located in María Luisa Park and declared a Property of Cultural Interest, the building designed by Aníbal González for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929 was transformed in 1968 and, what was a building with clean spaces and large interior volumes , then becomes an office building housing various municipal delegations, the last being Employment, which will leave it definitively in 2020.

But the presented rehabilitation project (“Adaptation to the use of the exhibition and architectural studies of Aníbal González”) was not favorably informed by the Heritage Commission since it proposes the expansion of the building in its basement. -ground outwards, giving rise to new elements on the outside. which will modify the perception of the building and its environment, or even modify the delimitation of the platform on which the pavilion is located. The Commission also considers that the document presented does not define the formalization of the passageways which would cross the central hall, nor the elements which will appear on the roofs and which will allow the proposed gazebo function. Similarly, interventions around the building, such as access ramps or actions in basins or peripheral sidewalks, are only noted, pending further specification and definition.

For all the above, it is concluded that the appearance of the new basement should be reconsidered, limiting the intervention to the existing building. And, as for the rest of the project, he expects a better definition of the solutions on the building. Likewise, the museographic proposal, although considered correct, remains awaiting the final definition of the real estate project.
