Arte en Ruinas – a successful campaign

Arte en Ruinas “Arte en Ruinas”, created by José Luis Díaz, was originally conceived by its author as an online blog to record the history and current situation of historic buildings in the region of Extremadura. The blog aims to vindicate the care and importance of the region’s material cultural heritage. José Luis kindly agreed to take part in SYNOPSIS as a Best Practice case study, so we hope you will feel inspired when visiting this site.

Currently, and thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, the stories on this blog have been published in a book Arte en Ruinas. Guía del Patrimonio Olvidado de Extremadura, which can be purchased online. In addition, a virtual map of Extremadura has been created which locates all the historical buildings for those interested in going to discover them!
