La Bastida de les Alcusses

The Fallas, declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Other nearby perpendicular streets organise lateral areas and spaces without buildings laid out as slcusses.

Three tactile scale-models have been defined and implemented as resources, available for people with visual disability and other bastidq users such as children in particular and the general public. Cultivation was done with wooden ploughs reinforced with iron ploughshares, of which a number have been found in the houses of the town.

al This has required monitoring the experimental and participative research process focused on users with visual disability, with the aim to determine their formal volumetric features and textures. The relevance and essential preservation of this complex adds associated environmental values to the landscape’s own value, such as the outstanding presence of wildlife species, whose protection is directly linked to the active maintenance of the current existing mosaic of land uses, air quality, aromas etc.

The site covers over 4 hectares and is metres long and metres wide. One of the inscribed lead plaques found on the site is l with a list of names, with different quantities written beside each name and many of the names crossed out.

If you continue to browse, we consider that you are accepting its use. The site is a major reference for the study of Iberian culture and an exceptional case to learn about this type of settlements due to various reasons: Three tactile scale-models were executed which provide new resources for the accessibility, the perception and the interpretation of the site.

La Bastida was abandoned around the third quarter of the 4th century BC following a violent episode with other Iberian groups of the area. Cambridge, Cambridge University Press,pp. We wish to highlight that the design of the accessibility devices have been executed based on the exhaustive analysis and preliminary research of this type alcusaes 3-dimensional resource.

As such, it was probably only inhabited for three or four generations. This wall is some 4 metres wide and there are four gates: The inhabitants of la Bastida lived in a stratified society.

In the preliminary studies conducted to carry out this project such as the analysis and overall action, we highlight the following issues: About authors involved. These scale-models contribute features of overall and partial representation of the site and the outstanding milestones along a specific route. This intervention contributes to the work to guarantee the free access and enjoyment for all the people in this heritage site, as well as the creation of new resources for the economic and cultural development in the local scope in a privileged environment, complementing the landscape, gastronomy and enology opportunities which the district offers.

As a relevant aspect, it is worth mentioning the difficulty of implementing this intervention in the work site, derived from the geographical location of this site in the ridge of the “Serra Grossa”, without electrical lines, precarious conditions for vehicle access and works execution, the ground variations in order to perform the multiple drilling tasks as well as assuring the care of the original ruins.

In addition, in the case of the blind or people with serious visual disabilities, they facilitate the communication and learning of lz, which is a central feature in the consideration of the management of public heritage asset according to an inclusive design [11]. The current fruit tree cultivation in the plain have transformed many plots, but it is still possible to observe a landscape, essentially characterised by the traditional rhythm of agricultural labours with hardly any modern buildings.

The implemented resources undoubtedly improve the conditions and quality of the visits to the site bastidw increase the socialization and integration of people with disabilities in this unknown heritage. The result has been the development and implementation of an innovative and pioneer resource in the scope which concerns us.
