Marble Interpretation Center

The Marble Interpretation Center is conceived as a cultural space where history, tradition, innovation and future harmoniously coexist to offer us a vision of the Macael marble culture. Through interpretive panels, audiovisual resources and exhibitions of different pieces and elements, a space is created that makes possible the contextualization of this culture and that contribute to making the visit more attractive, participative and experiential. From it, guided visits to las canteras and workshops are organized.
