The pergola is an architectural and structural element whose origin date back to the late Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance. The most attractive pergolas were built with brick and stone pillars and rigid crossbeams, they were amazing luxurious constructions.
Nowadays, pergolas are made of wood, although they can be built with other materials, and are made up of columns on which a beam structure rests. The most important thing is that we use materials that can resist inclement weather though they must be treated first.
The main purpose of pergolas is to provide shade in an open space. The natural artificiality of pergolas has turned them into a decorative element present in the new trends in architecture and design. It is common to find them in gardens, terraces or roofs, but also in public squares and gardens, as well as in chill-out areas and restaurants.
