阿洛拉的城堡被古老的阿拉巴尔所环绕，被设置为Sierra del Hacho山区景观的鞠躬。这个村庄有着丰富而有趣的历史，有关摩尔人对天主教徒的防御，以及有关弗拉门戈歌曲的创作。它进行了一次建筑竞赛，用于翻新和翻新城堡周围环境，以便翻新公共设施以及吸引新的旅客。我们提出了一个名为“挂毯比例1：1”的干预措施，它捕捉了其文化景观的能量。这将是一种石头地图，可以帮助参观者看到，发现，了解和体验文化景观。完整干预的第二阶段是通往城堡和所谓的360º观景台的一部分
About the place and the intervention
Álora, with its Castle surrounded by an ancient Arrabal, is placed as a bow of the mountainous landscape of Sierra del Hacho. The village has a rich and interesting history related to the Moorish defence against Catholics and about the creation of the malagueña, a kind of flamenco song. It took place an architectural competition for refurbishing and renovating the castle surroundings in order to renovate public facilities as well as attract new travellers. We purposed an intervention called “tapestry scale 1:1” which captures the energy of its cultural landscape. It would be a kind of stone map which would help the visitant to see, discover, know and experience the cultural landscape. The second phase of the complete intervention has been a part of the path toward the Castle and the so called viewpoint 360º
通往Cerro de las Torres（塔楼山）周围城堡的道路连接城堡和Plaza deladespedía（Arrabal主广场）。在其主要曲线中，第8个经过十字路口的地方，出现了显示阿洛拉景观丰富的观点。路径处于恶劣的保护状态，墙面朝向棕色鲑鱼色的景观。我们已经将人行道建成了一块石头地毯，墙壁已被构思出来，寻找它的“隐形”。墙的下部是用棕色砂岩石笼制成的，山上有颜色。在上部，阳台几乎是空气振动。石头路径改变了它的纹理，因为它接近第8个通过crucis停止，两个附近的大理石座位和观景点，这表明动态360º视图。一方面，有山谷的自然景观和Guadalhorce盆地及其果园。另一方面，由于我们的空中位置，我们可以将文化景观的主要亮点联系起来：JesúsNazarenode las Torres的哥特式教堂，阿拉伯城堡，以及村庄的中世纪几何形状，其高处是Hacho山。
The path toward the castle which surrounds the Cerro de las Torres (Towers’ hill) joins the Castle with the Plaza de la despedía (main square of the Arrabal). In its main curve, where the 8th via crucis stop is, appears the viewpoint showing Alora’s landscape plenitude. The path was in a bad conservancy condition and the wall facing to the views painted in brown salmon colour. We have built the pavement as a stone carpet and the wall has been conceived looking for its “invisibility”. The lower part of the wall has been made in brown sandstone gabions with the colour of the hill. The upper part, the veranda is nearly an air vibration. The stone path modifies its texture as it approaches to the 8th via crucis stop, two nearby marble seats and the viewpoint which suggests a dynamic 360º view. On one side, there is the natural landscape of valleys and the basin of the Guadalhorce with its orchards. On the other, thanks to our aerial position, we could link the main highlights of the cultural landscape: the Gothic chapel of Jesús Nazareno de las Torres, the Arab castle, and the medieval geometry of the village with the mount Hacho on its high.
About materials and construction
The materials are used following their own truth. Their way of joining follow our main project ideas. Wall and balustrade
It is a stop on the way, a place for contemplation and an information point of the cultural landscape. Its floor is made of metallic plates creating a vibrating transparency. The balustrade is made by thin vertical bars supporting a width handrail which contains perforated an aerial texts. Perforated ones indicate historical periods, important persons or interesting data for the traveller, and the aerial ones point out special places of the landscape.
At sunset, the way to the castle is marked by a rhythm of small lighting square pavement, placed between the stone ones. During Easter acts, there will be candles inside the balustrade.
We would have liked having captured the essence of landscape and having shown to the traveller a new way of feeling the historical landscape of Álora. The path and the viewpoint underline the landscape making its values emerge.
