Abstract

This paper addresses the effects of fire on historic surfaces through the scientific analysis of the original mortars and pigments of the Chalet of the Countess of Edla, located in the Park of Pena (Sintra, Portugal). It is intended as a first approach to the study and characterization of the historical fabric in the context of the ongoing restoration project, promoted by Parques de Sintra-Monte da Lua, SA.
