Abstract


The palace was a monumental building with two towers on the front, a central courtyard, a ground floor with utilitarian function and a luxury upper floor with an aristocratic and representative character and an extraordinary architectural decoration. The building was used a short time, less than a century, because a great fire caused its collapse and destruction of the building. After a lot of historical, archaeological and architectural dimension studies, there is a new interpretation of the palatine building. For the 3-D modelling of the palace, we use a data collection with a laser-scanner, and the plans from the excavation and the architectural modulation previously elaborated. The conclusions of the multidisciplinary work from the reconstruction have been used extensively in archaeological publications and, especially in the didactic information for the new Visigoth Museum and other touristic activities. There's also a 3-D printed model of the reconstruction.
