Abstract


Occurence of small sacral architecture in Croatia dated from the period of the first record of Croats existence (from early Middle Ages onward). Regardless the place (urban agglomeration, rural area or open landscape such as fields, forests, meadows, mountains and the like) where people live they have always been followed by small sacral architectures. They are characterized by architecture and garden design, occurrence purpose and use, appearance place and almost always determination of the space it is located. The purpose is always related to a religion belief being the symbol of the Christian affiliation. Materials and methods used are common for investigating landscape values such as field touring and valorization, historical research of archives, photographs, clipping archive, recording new data,making surveys and the like. This paper aims to prove specific values of small sacral architecture within the landscape values of Croatia and represent this aspect of human intervention as a specialty of traditional belief and space design.
