This text intends to illustrate the analysis of historical architecture from such a human point of view as it is perception. It is a sensitive analysis, which allows approaching how the historical builds worked and were understood from an existential perspective, since certain architectures were built to cause definite emotions to its users. However, it is sometimes difficult to propose this type of analysis, because architectures have been usually transformed or have even disappeared. In these cases, virtual reconstructions are an interesting vehicle to recover these architectural spaces and "to restore", as far as possible, emotions, experiences and meanings that would provoke to its contemporary watchers. The conceptual and methodological keys of perceptive analysis are explained, using as example its application to the virtual reconstruction of the palace built by the king Peter the First in the Alcazar of Seville in the 14th century. © 2013 CSIC.
