For this, we have studied the morphological and structural properties of the host galaxies associated with 58 luminous type 2 AGN (high luminosity Seyfert 2 and obscured QSO2). Our study is based on high spatial resolution optical HST images. We focus on topics such as the galaxy types and structure, the incidence of merger/interactions features and possible correlations with AGN power proxies. In this talk we will present the methodology, results and a discussion about the importance of parametric studies in morphological classification of galaxies. We will put them in context of related works on type 1 and type 2 AGN.
