Art trip : Marble Museum, Estremoz, Portugal

Somehow lost in the middle of the quarries, the marble museum of Estremoz doesn’t promise much from the outside. Yet, with such a gorgeous material and the pure alentejo sun, a little magic was bound to happen. It’s not vast, it’s not carefully arranged but it has its beautiful corners. The delicacy of the patterns, the rugged tools laid out the precious marble and the impressive sculptures from local artists made me dream of a venue worthy of such an inspiring subject.


I don’t seem to be able to find the address online, but it was our guide, Mélanie, who took us there.
Remember the beautiful marble quarry?
