Places of worship are heritage spaces of great cultural, artistic and architectural value. Likewise, events take place in them, members of their intangible cultural heritage, where the transmission of sound is a preferential factor. Therefore, it is important to guarantee an adequate acoustic conditioning of the places of worship for its two fundamental uses, religious music and speech. For this, a methodology has been established consisting of the phases of acoustic measurement, study of the acoustic behavior of the enclosure, lifting and calibration of the acoustic model and acoustic simulations. As they are protected buildings, intervention proposals must be based on respect for the heritage values of temples. With all this, in this study a proposal has been made to improve the acoustic conditioning of the Cathedral of Valencia.
