"Marble pavement" Alicante Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Alicante Things to Do: 182 reviews and 301 photos


There are several marble quarries in the region around Alicante. The pavement of the Expolanade of Spain could not be done of other material, of course.

Inspired in the waves of the Mediterranean sea, it is formed by millions of marble tesselas in marquina black, alicante red and ivory cream colours.
