Notes

Immovable monuments include: a) ancient goods dating up to 1830; b) contemporary cultural objects predating the last 100 years; and c) contemporary cultural objects dating with the last 100 years. The last two categories are classified as monuments on account of their architectural, urban planning, social, ethnological, folklore or historical, artistic or scientific importance. Once classified as such, the object is protected under the provisions of archaeological legislation. The same procedure is also followed for the classification of cultural objects other than religious objects, but the Services of Contemporary Monuments and Technical Works and the Directorate for the Protection and Restoration of Contemporary Monuments are the competent agencies.
