Granite is a material that prevails in time and enhances the history of our civilization.
Its use is present in all the architectural manifestations in Galicia, from antiquity to the present. This legacy allows us to maintain a tradition in the methods of work, in the extraction, transformation and application of the material, being able to affirm that the Galician inherited the knowledge, the obligation and the culture of the stone.
As a result of this knowledge acquired over the years, we have a technology and a tradition which makes us the people who best produce, cut, transform and place granite in the world.
