The Cultural Heritage is a concept by which society attempts to value those cultural symbols that give identity , or have occurred throughout its history.
Societies are built around a set of values, traditions, ideas and concepts around which people are able to identify and place ourselves in the world, depending on where we are born and develop their way of life. The Cultural Heritage aims to make visible those artistic, social and cultural events that reflect that identity formation along its evolution in time, so it aims to focus on the preservation, dissemination and maintenance of those cultural symbols considered important, and showing values of certain intangible assets of social interest.
These assets can be tangible, such as a painting, a cathedral and a castle, or intangible, such as cultural identity may be manifestations of a particular people in a particular region as Flamenco or the Bullfighting in Spain.
The Cultural Heritage is a dynamic, changing, attempting to preserve those goods of common interest that best reflect a society concept. That is why the Cultural Heritage depends on the values, ideas and cultural components existing at a given moment in time.
