"Pedra en Sec” Structures

Ares del Maestrat

Structures built using the "dry stone" technique are understood to be those that do not use any type of binder; it’s an ancestral construction technique that has been used in rural areas to create unique scenery which has become true heritage for humanity.

These types of structures can be found both in the Mediterranean area as well as the Atlantic area.  Those in the Mediterranean area are linked to farming, are situated on croplands and used for storage, a place of rest or protection as well as for temporary housing.

They are located in this province in a very specific area of the local region of Ports and the surrounding area.  Thus, these types of structures can be found in Ares, Castellfort, Portell, Tirig y Vilafranca.

Throughout the municipal area.
