MonuBENCH Project#02 Barbastro [Spain]
The territory between Barbastro and Arize Lèze shares an important cultural and historical heritage that has its origin in the eleventh and twelfth centuries: the Romanesque style. Monubench proposes a revision of the concept of contemporary Romananesque territory, to enhance and preserve the signs of cross-border cultural identity. This raises the reinterpretation of one of the most unique, representative and symbolic of the Romanesque, the Front Facade.
