objeto de conservación
It can refer both to elements with material representation, such as structures, architectonic ensembles, panels with rock drawings, archaeological roads and deposits, and also to elements whose existence is not defined by specific material references, but by all the relations established between them, as for example, circulation, routes and landscape.
