The art. No. 70 of Colombian Constitution establishes that the Culture and its various expressions are a fundamental basis for the Nation. Such constitutional rule legitimates the rigid legislation about the safeguard and valorisation of the extraordinary Colombian Cultural Heritage. The complex of these rules is well-known as the so called "Cultural Constitution". Moving from this approach, the Author examines the various categories included in the Cultural Heritage, the related regulation, and the limits to the property right, which are imposed to enhance the public interest in the preservation and valorisation of such goods. Nevertheless, the Cultural Heritage engraves not only on the property right regime but also on the government of the territory, as the Colombian legislation promotes specific urban plans to protect and enhance the goods of cultural interest, defining an effective system of "cultural planning".
