After several years of collection, study and analysis of archaeological finds in Villa Romana do Rabaçal(VRR) the Municipality of Penela understood that, given the high patrimonial and cultural interest of the site, regarding the period of Roman occupation in the Iberian Peninsula, it would be necessary to develop an Archaeological Complex to support the conservation / preservation, visit, interpretation and exhibition of the present legacy.
To this end, the Municipality of Penela, assisted by the Northern Regional Council of the Architects Association (CDRN), has outlined an action strategy aimed at the development of two Public Design Competitions, for the creation of an Archaeological Site of the Villa Romana do Rabaçal, which complement each other and will be launched sequentially, with the ultimate goal of acquiring a requalification project for the Villa Romana do Rabaçal. It is within this framework that the Municipality of Penela launches this Public Design Competition, not followed by direct agreement, in order to ensure the selection of quality work at the base program level.
