Uses and applications of Piedra Montealegre

Piedra Montealegre is a stone with cream tones. Because of its sandstone nature, it is a moldable stone and so ideal for making sculptures in workshops and for training in stone craftsmanship.

Given its elegant tone, its use is also very widespread as cladding for building facades, and it can be delivered with different surface finishes. Among these surface finishes are the classic pointed finish and the aged finished which has small shapes and borders.


Exterior Building Facade Cladding

This is, without a doubt, its most widespread use. Given its uniform and elegant tonality, Piedra Montealegre has been and still is used for facades on all types of buildings from modern apartments and housing developments, to the restoration of medieval castles. This is because its authentic beauty is timeless.



Piedra Montealegre is a sandstone so it is a very moldable stone. The stone has no fissures and cracks, so it can be used for large-scale sculptural projects.

As such it is used in the manufacture of balustrades, columns, handrails and other objects handcrafted in natural stone
