An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Stonemason Museum

Throughout the centuries, the extraction and transformation of granite stone has been the main occupation of several generations of ‘gereneros’, constituting the economic base of the town, together with agriculture. Testimonies of this tradition can be seen in the Stonemason Museum. The building is located in the Fuente Santa, very close to the Fontanilla, where numerous pits from the old granite exploitation are located.

The museum has a self-guided route through explanatory panels, tools, audio-visual aids and photographic exhibitions to make the works of extraction, transformation and commercialisation of granite comprehensible. The elements exhibited in the museum's installations are the result of donations and disinterested contributions from local residents.
