The Traditional Architecture Research Center (CIAT) is a science and technology center established by virtue of an agreement signed in 1996 by the Polytechnic University of Madrid and the town council of Boceguillas (Segovia province, Spain) for the performance of research, training and dissemination in the field of traditional architecture and construction, historic cities, cultural landscapes and built heritage. The helpfulness of Boceguillas town council, support from the Madrid Polytechnic University and its College of Architecture and funding from the development department of the government of Castilla y León and the EU Leader II Program (managed in this area by CODINSE) allowed the building that houses the center’s headquarters to be refurbished and its activities to start up. It is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021.
