Legal protection

Preserve, investigate and publicise our cultural heritage

The legal protection of Catalonia's cultural heritage is guaranteed by a series of rules whose application is regulated.

Through these rules, we want to preserve, investigate and publicise our cultural heritage and guarantee its conservation with one main aim: that today's society can enjoy it and that it is in the best possible state for future generations.

The general legal framework that regulates these activities is the Law on Catalan Cultural Heritage.

Furthermore, there are specific regulations for each heritage speciality that you can consult here.
