The historic urban core is a repository of cultural heritage in its buildings, monuments public spaces and townscape. It has been formed through incremental change over many years in response to changing pressures on the role of the city. This has produced a complex, highly differentiated urban fabric in terms of real estate ownership, urban structure and the historic periods represented. The physical characteristics of historic cores have common characteristics in terms of the complexity of the urban fabric with local variations. These characteristics make the historic urban cores a primary European cultural asset.
