This April, the scientific team of the Province of Zaragoza, formed by Isabel Soria and Irene Ruiz, celebrated a MOMAr Tour in Spain, along with Victoria Trasobares, the Director of Territorio Mudéjar.
The Territorio Mudéjar association is a private management entity in which government bodies collaborate, based on a project whose outcomes directly influence the region through the responsible and sustainable management of Mudéjar cultural heritage. In the framework of this tour, the group visited 3 of the 41 villages that form Territorio Mudéjar.
The MOMAr Tour started in the town of Villarreal de Huerva, where the team was welcomed by María Rosario Lázaro, the mayoress. She presented the different projects that are currently carried out, as well as the recovery plan of the town walls that will enhance this heritage space’s opportunities as a setting for various cultural activities. The tour continued at the town hall, where Eugenia Gallego, Cultural Heritage Management Master student at the University of Zaragoza, explained the key points of her final Master’s degree project in which she studies the joint strategic management of the heritage of several towns, developed in Territorio Mudéjar and which is gradually being implemented with the support of the association.
After visiting the imposing church of San Miguel Arcángel located in Villarreal, the MOMAr team went to Mainar where they met the mayoress Maria Lina Hernando. Hernando accompanied them for the visit to the Mudéjar church of Santa Ana and informed them about the management initiatives that are being carried out in the municipality with the help of Territorio Mudéjar. The MOMAr Tour ended with the visit to the interesting Mudéjar tower of Romanos, where the team could know first-hand the experience of the Mudéjar architecture knowledge dissemination that is being developed thanks to the research work done by the organisation.
