Abstract

The landscapes are begining to be perceived by our society as a very valuable resource wich affects the quality of life, often subjected to severe degradation processes. Historically the province of Segovia has maintained high quality landscapes, although some have been changed by the urban development occurred in recent years. The present article proposes to delineation of landscape units and subsequent assessment of quality and fragility, which can serve as a tool for better management of landscapes and promote sustainable development in the province.
