Abstract: This paper focuses on the new concept of GeoMonumental Routes, which mainly consists of the dissemination of architectural heritage with the added value of geology. Geology, so far, has not been considered in all its aspects in architectural heritage: i.e. geography, geomorphology, quarries provenance, building stones, and their relationship with historical and architectural aspects, constructive techniques and technological developments, as well as the connection of heritage structures to the settlement of historical routes. For this purpose, two scientific teams have gathered to develop two of this kind of routes following a common methodology, based on different geographical context, geological settlement, history, structure tipology and building stones.
