Together with the new urban planning, in the first decades of the 20th century the Civic Art movement found in the conservation of historic cities one preferential ground to keep the artistic quality advocated by Camillo Sitte. It was within this framework that Antonio Palacios made his proposals to intervene in the heart of two Spanish historic cities: Ourense (1928) and Santiago de Compostela (1932). The functional objectives of providing new accesses to their cathedrals were solved by means of a square presided by a staircase in Ourense, and an avenue of irregular layout and scenographic effects in Santiago. Sharing inspiration in the traditional and historic architectures of the Galician region, the personal interpretation of the vernacular heritage in the regionalism of Palacios was presented as an operative tool to address the reform and expansion in old cities, although finally both proposals did not go beyond the paper.
Keywords: Antonio Palacios, Town Planning, Vernacular Architecture, Historic Cities, Historic Urban Landscape.
