Based on real case studies, each participant will experience the entire process of 3d survey using the relevant equipment and technology: the field survey, data processing, rendering, interpretation and final presentation of the work. Participants will be guided by experienced tutors in all process stages. The real case studies are 2 monasteries located in Alentejo region, about one hour away from Lisbon and situated around the UNESCO Heritage Site city of Évora. These monasteries were part of the Congregation of Saint Paul of Serra de Ossa (Ossa Mountain), which was founded in 1482, originated by an important eremitic movement called Homens da Pobre Vida (poor life men), documented since 1366. The community of hermits expanded up to the first half of the 15th century, mostly in southern Portugal in the Alentejo region. In 1578, following a process of institutionalization led by the Church, an autonomous congregation was set up, affiliated in the Hungarian Order of Saint Paul the First Hermit, until 1834, when the decree of dissolution of the religious orders disbanded all the convents and monasteries in Portugal.
