After having been used to quarry sandstone, the Quarries of S’Hostal, a landscape of monumental proportions with a three-dimensional, sculptural beauty, have been redeveloped by Líthica and are today a very popular cultural centre.
The two distinct methods of quarrying the sandstone have created two contrasting areas:
The old manually-worked quarries form a labyrinth of stone and vegetation between inclined walls and irregular shapes where the s’Hostal gardens are being developed to include a botanical circuit lined with native plants and a medieval garden.
The modern quarries are vast, impressive spaces dominated by precise vertically dressed walls forming a cubical amphitheatre where concerts are held in the summer.
ACTIVITIES: Tours, Festive events and concerts, Sculpture workshops, Tai chi courses, Quarry hire.
Open summer season every day from 9.30 until sunset.
