... Unlike further downstream, where the valley widens to provide important agricultural lands, the irrigated crops here were restricted to a few well-defined vegetable gardens. Thus, the settlements along the river banks interrelate with the traditional road system not only because of the importance of the Guadiana as a transport thoroughfare connecting to the Mediterranean Sea (longitudinal axis) but also due to the former presence of vessels that provided continuity to the land routes on either bank of the river (transversal axes) (Silva, 2006;Garcia, 2018). ...
Article
This article deals with permanence and change in the traditional architecture of southern Portugal, adopting the town and landscape of Mértola as a case study. This research conveys how the relationship between the vernacular architecture, the territory and the site is not immune to the course of history, reflecting a profound change in the ways of living over time. In methodological terms, the research focuses on surveying and characterizing architectural diversity in both the rural context (with the definition of various landscape subunits) and the urban context (delimiting the various urban subunits). This concludes that the architectural specificity, in both contexts, is subordinate to the same processes of historical change which nevertheless acquire a circumstantial dimension. These processes include the readable influences of models and ways of living arriving from abroad and contemplate: the transition of the courtyard house from the Islamic medieval period to the compact house of the Christian medieval and modern periods; the consolidation, diversification and ennobling of different housing types during the Ancien Régime; and the profound transformations of domestic architecture following the advent of Liberalism.

Este livro aborda as modalidades de construção da identidade nacional em duas localidades situadas em lados opostos da fronteira luso-espanhola no rio Guadiana. O principal objetivo é contribuir para o estudo da identidade portuguesa. Os objetos mais precisos da investigação etnográfica em que se baseia o trabalho apresentado são as festas, incluindo as taurinas, a alimentação e os estereótipos nacionais. As semelhanças e dissemelhanças de facto entre as populações em estudo também são objeto de descrição e análise, mas a atenção centra-se no ponto de vista dos habitantes, nos seus discursos.
