Abstract: The tabique is one of the main Portuguese traditional building techniques which uses raw materials as earth. In general, a tabique element is formed by a simple timber structure covered on both sides by a earth based mortar. Earth has an important role in this system because it protects the timber structure as well as is a finishing. The Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region is the northeast part of Portugal continental and it is rich in terms of tabique heritage. Meanwhile, the existing tabique constructions show a generalized advanced stage of deterioration. This aspect associated to the fact that there is still a lack of scientific studies done in this field motivated this research work that has been done by the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD) and Aveiro (UA) universities.
