WHITE GOLD 1 DAY ITINERARY
The whole day is dedicated to the visit of Macael, known as the city of white gold, and its surroundings. Macael's history, culture and tradition is strongly linked with the majestic stone of marble. Around it Macael has formed an entrenched culture of strength and dedication that materializes in the knowledge of extraction and processing techniques that have been passed from father to son.
The first stop over is to visit the World's Largest Mortar. The mortar is made of white marble Macael and is registered in the Guinness Book as the world's largest mortar with 4.5 mts. high and 37 tons in weight.
The second stop is the Marble Interpretation Center. It plays a triple role as a visitor reception center, tourist information point and interpretive space that enables a contextualization of Macael marble culture, which leads visitors to the quarries and crafts and sculpture workshops that are organized from there. We learn to orient geographically .
It is now time to get in the car and visit the nearby Cosentino Marble Quarry Viewpoint. It is located above the white marble quarry greater extent. Highlights are the large white marble benches in the open, thanks to the impressive recess made. Also, the large machines which are used for the extraction of marble quarries.
