Abstract: The Historical Centre of Porto was considered in 1996 UNESCO World Heritage due to the outstanding value of the site. In order to contribute to its maintenance and of its remarkable set of buildings, with historical, architectural, constructive and heritage value, in opposition to the continuous built heritage degradation process and the population dislocation from the centre to the surroundings, NCREP -FEUP have been participating in many rehabilitation projects, analyzing the conservation state of building’s structural elements. The focus of the present paper is given to the evaluation of the timber structural elements, namely to the various instruments used on the Analysis and Diagnosis phases, in particular non destructive (NDT) and, in a certain context, destructive testing techniques.
