El sector histórico de Giron, está comprendido por 64 hectáreas caracterizadas por una arquitectura colonial del siglo XVII. Conserva sus casas coloniales de paredes blancas, puertas y ventanas marrones, balcones amplios, sus calles empedradas y estrechas con pequeños andenes; viviendas con aleros en su totalidad y sus techos con tejas de barro. El patrimonio arquitectónico representa uno de los componentes principales de la ciudad contemporánea de SAN JUAN DE GIRÓN, acompañado de un tratamiento de conservación histórica. La valoración de este patrimonio se complementa con la identificación de las zonas que tengan características físicas exepcionales para el municipio y, por tanto debe ser protegido como parte de su patrimonio cultural y ambiental. Igualmente este patrimonio ambiental es constituido por valores intangibles representados en sus tradiciones, hábitos, manifestaciones, costumbres, así como el conjunto de sus bienes inmateriales, materiales que poseen un interés histórico, artístico, plástico, arquitectónico, urbano, arqueológico, ambiental y cronológico. Para ser declarado Monumento Nacional, nos remitimos la Ley 163 de 1959 mediante la cual el Congreso de la República dictó medidas sobre defensa y conservación del patrimonio histórico, artístico y monumentos públicos de la Nación.
