Abstract

The communication refers to the active role that the space has in the building of cultural schemes, seen as the memory and identity of a place. The intention is to identify types of places with the possibility of overlapping and communication between them within the territory very well defines, Ţara Haţegului. The development of Ţara Haţegului as the GeoPark leads to the development of some publicly and semi-publicly differentiated spaces within the settlements, which means, in fact, the relationship between the different types of landscapes at the scale of human settlement. The spatial analysis from the morphological point of view highlights the interaction between the geographical configurations and the evolution of the society’s culture over time within the Romanian rural landscape.
