Andalucia's Marble


The marble and stone carvers of Andalucia are known for their traditional working of tombstones, pantheons and adornments.

The carvers of Jaén are well known for their finely carved marble ashlars. There are many factories in the province of Malaga, such as the Colegiata at Antequera. There is a well known quarry at Macael in Almeria Province that produces marble which rivals that of Carrara in purity.

A remarkable example of this work is the House of Stone (Casa de la Piedra) in Porcuna, Jaén province.
