Around the country, you can find many buildings and sites of historical value, where important events took place or where important people lived. There's a special category of buildings and sites known as protected buildings or architectural patrimony. These protected buildings and sites have very distinct characteristics and significance, which makes their preservation critical. Through law decrees, their modification and demolition is prohibited. They may be restored and retrofitted, only if the original characteristics and ambience of the sites are preserved.

Touring the country, you may see many of these protected buildings. They're usually easy to spot, due to their unusual and classic detailing, out of place in today's modern cities.
