Keywords:King Portal (Benavente), San Juan del Mercado, repair mortars, lime mortars
In the selection of materials required by any work on Architectural Heritage, a series of special requirements must be borne in mind which are essential to guarantee the application of the repairs. In this work the guidelines and basic criteria for the selection of repair mortars that have led to the design of mortars to restore the Kings Portal of the church of San Juan del Mercado (Benavente, Zamora), carved in stone in the Romanesque style and later polychromed are shown. The study is based on the characteristics of the ancient historical mortars, the compatibility of the restoration mortars with the mortars already existing in the monument, and the application needs of the specific work. Finally, the characteristics and properties of the specific repair mortar chosen are shown
