This present work tries to reproduce, through test of controlated conditions in accelerate aging, reproducing the most frecuent ambients in places affected by a clima of continental tendency, the more commun forms of deterioration in historical interesting buildings, constructed with granitic rocks in those places. We analyze the changes in the rocks nature and properties (intensity and rapidity), produced in different experiences. In this study, realised on "sensu lato" granites, we come to the conclusion that the deterioration due to cold/hot and frost/defrosting processes is quite slow and not much appreciable within a short time, whereas if the phenomena of salts cristalization in the rocs occurs, the deterioration is rapid and intense.
