Definition of the noun Viga
What does Viga mean as a name of something?
noun - plural: vigas
- a roughly made rafter or roof timber, especially in a Latin American village
Viga: Vigas are wooden beams characteristic of older adobe construction in the southwestern United States of America, and commonly encountered for ornamental rather than functional purposes in Pueblo Revival Style architecture. They are significant in the archaeology of the American Southwest, because construction techniques used by ancestral Puebloan peoples have left both intact vigas in some structures, and distinctive holes in cliff faces where cliff dwellings were constructed that have subsequently been lost.
