Evaluative studies on the archeological potential for environmental D1 impact studies

The nation’s archeological patrimony is formed by all material evidence from indigene societies that lived in what we know today as Costa Rica.  This in situ evidence makes the archeological site.

The evaluative studies of the potential impact on any activity, work or project on archeological sites over or underground held by the National Techniques Secretary (SETENTA), are included in environmental viability studies to protect such sites and the patrimony in them.  This procedure is the first link to the protection of national archeological patrimony.
