Sacra Saxa: Interactive Mapping of the Inventory of Sacred Stones from Huesca Province, Spain
Huesca Province, SpainFebruary 2020
The ‘sacred stones’ of the province of Huesca, Aragon region, Spain, have been inventoried for more than twenty years. These are rocks in which cults, libation rituals, sacrifices on some occasions, mostly pre-Christian have been nrelated, although some were later Christianized.
All the information is offered in an interactive, interdisciplinary map, conceived with the double objective of providing information to researchers and of valuing the heritage of sacred stones through its dissemination. There is a general map of the province and nine regional maps. Depending on the zoom levels, the sacred stones are grouped geographically. As one approaches, it is possible to visualize the location of each element and access its associated information. Sacred stones can also be located based on queries by keywords, by territorial location (district, municipality and locality) and by functional and morphological typologies. The inventory currently presents the 206 sacred stones, with 241 files, about 1,500 photographs, 13 videos and an audiovisual on the Roldán Falls.
Information and preparation of files: Eugenio Monesma Moliner, José Miguel Navarro López and Josefina Roma Riu.
