Workshop “De Placeo en Guadalupe” : Reactivation of the squares of Guadeloupe

Location: Guadalupe, Cáceres (Spain)

Year: 2018

Framework:9th UNESCO European Global Geopark Week Landscapes and Gardens Festival

#Landscape #Society

The network of squares in Guadeloupe forms a system of public space of great value which, according to the recent accessibility plan, is undervalued. The places are occupied by traffic and car parks. It is necessary to recover these urban spaces as places of relationship and social reactivation for residents and visitors.

For a few hours, the squares of Guadalupe, around their fountains, are emptied of cars and filled with chairs and neighbours who remember the stories that happened there, the ones told by their grandparents or parents, when the squares were really a meeting place.
