Limestone is a natural stone type extracted, processed and used in buildings and pavements in Portugal for many centuries. Small samples (and photos) hardly capture the full variation range of color and texture of natural stones. Even so, the picture above tries to depict some of the Portuguese limestones beauty. The image was (laboriously) created from individual smaller photos (the lower row corresponds to the classic Lioz limestone – Pero Pinheiro vicinity, nearby Lisbon).
Hope you enjoy.
