The quarries of Macael occupy more than 6,600 hectares. Within them we will visit the Cosentino viewpoint from where the modern extraction process will be observed and explained. In addition, it will show what the old communication system in the quarries was like by using “conches” and the possibility of experiencing “in situ” the process of “zipping” the marble with the use of pinch and almaina, with the objective of making the visit more experiential. In addition, we have special permission to visit the quarry area where Ridley Scott’s film “Exodus: Gods and Kings” was filmed.
