What most enchants those who visit Portugal is the diversity in such a small territory, after all, from north to south they are only 600km away. This diversity is provided by many factors, including people, cuisine, customs, pronunciation and architecture. Regarding the landscape, the architect has a very important role, but also the materials used by them. The use of natural and local materials allowed this landscape diversity to be more accentuated, the natural stone and even the color that is found in abundance in Porto is different from that found in Aveiro, Lisbon and the Algarve.

The light brownish-yellow and homogeneous granite, of two micas, with medium grain and a slight porphyroid tendency is one of these stones. This type of granite is most used in exterior arrangements for the execution of floors, curbs and building facades.

Portugal is also known for its cobbled Portuguese pavement, available in 5 colours, white stone, black stone, dark gray stone, light gray stone and pink stone. These stone tones can be found in 4 different sizes. This difference in dimensions and colors is used to achieve a greater number of combinations, thus creating differentiated and elaborate designs. There are examples of this, with more than a century that proves its durability and resistance. It also has the advantage of easy removal for maintenance and replacement.
