Abstract
    This paper is part of a PhD research in architecture, carried out at the University of Seville from 2005 to 2013. The research aimed to develop an architectural study of the fortified sets of Mazagan (Morocco) and Ceuta (Spain), in North Africa, and Diu in India. The first bastioned fortifications were built in Africa and Asia by the Portuguese in the decade of the 1540s. We developed a knowledge base that did not yet exist, but that we find essential to the understanding of this heritage and to the future definition of conservation strategies. From a methodological point of view, the research focuses on the field of architectural analysis, as a synthesis that integrates different points corresponding to different knowledge areas, including project and architectural analysis, history of architecture, construction and heritage conservation. Graphic work assumes particular relevance throughout the investigation process.
