Abstract
We present a work developed in the Lozoya Valley, an area included into the list of Cultural Landscapes developed by IPCE, due to its highly valuable patrimonial characteristics. The study area combines sites of high naturalistic value with others that have been intensively transformed by humans throughout history. The traditional management of natural resources has shaped the landscape, giving place to an extent mosaic of silvopastoral uses, livestock tracks, and other singular elements, such as stone hedges. This combines with an important cultural heritage derived of the historical presence of clergy and royal families and in the area. The present work analyzes the dynamics of change in the spatial configuration of the territory. Using satellite images, we study landscape configuration through variables such as fragmentation, connectivity and heterogeneity. We use Fragstats software, which allows processing a wide range of territorial data to determine specific spatial patterns. We discuss some questions about natural and cultural heritage, and the effectiveness of protected areas in preserving rural-cultural landscapes.
